It’s been a week that around 60 participants of the “Summer School 2019” are enjoying the Armenian hospitality and the picturesque nature of the country, as well as are participating in lectures and discussions.
The foreign students, accompanied by the students of the ASPU and the Associate Professor of the Chair of World History and its Teaching Methods Hayk Grigoryan, visited the pagan temple of Garni and the monastery complex of Geghard. The Professor introduced the only standing pagan temple of Armenia, spoke about the specifications of this prominent monument, etc.
The student of the Pushkin State Russian Language Institute Christina Safarova noted during her interview to the aspu.am that from the first sight Garni looked like a Greek monument, then she added, “It is a unique example of ancient culture, and I had indescribable feelings there”.
The next stop of the “Summer School” students was Lake Sevan. After spending interesting and exciting time, they visited the Sevanavank. The international students were interested particularly in the historical events related to this place.
“I was impressed with the size of the Lake; I have never ever seen a lake as big as the Sevan. It was amazing to look at the lake from the Sevanavank as the lake seemed to have different special shades when watching at it from different angles”, mentions the student of the Moscow State University of Psychology and Education Tatiana Roitinskaya, after which she assures that if she comes to Armenia again, she will re-visit the Sevan.
To conclude, only two days are left before the end of the “Summer School” international programme, which will still be busy with a diversity of events, visits and discussions and will be followed by the solemn and official closing ceremony thereof.
