ARMENIAN FAMOUS RESORT TOWN OF SOVIET PERIOD DILIJAN BEING RESTORED
The greatest part of the resort town of Dilijan and local tourist
facilities are actively restored, Dilijan Vice Mayor Armen Makaryan
said at a press conference, Monday.
He said modern Hotel Mountainous Armenia will open soon. Large-scale
investments are made, especially by world known companies Tufenkian
($200 million) and Slav Group ($2 million). The construction is to be
completed within the coming 3 yeas. However, lack of labor force may
suspend the work, Makaryan said. At the same time, he hopes that after
the construction, Dilijan will become the tourist center of Armenia.
Some 2,000-2,500 tourists visit Dilijan every year. The number
of tourists is expected to rise to 12,000 people yearly after the
reconstruction of the resort.
