“I wasn’t acquainted with the history of Armenia before I came to the country. Everything is a miracle here. I took a fancy to Armenia as soon as I saw Mount Ararat through the window of the plane,” Victor Hegedis, a student of Pázmány Péter Catholic University, said when speaking about his three-day stay in Armenia.
On the second day of their visit, the participants of the International Summer School 2018 visited Noravank Monastery, Gladzor University Historical-Cultural Museum-Reservation and Tanahat church.

Within the framework of the international project, the participants also visited Mesrop Mashtots Institute of Ancient Manuscripts (Matenadaran) where they got acquainted with ancient manuscripts and books.
Many of the foreign students were impressed by their visit to the Armenian Genocide Museum-Institute where they received answers to a number of questions.
