Ruben Vardanyan’s Wings of Tatev project attracts 150 thousand tourists to Syunik every year

A CivilNet reporter visited the Tatev Monastery complex to find out how the Tatev Wings cable car contributes to the development of the region. The struc-ture design was commissioned by philanthropist Ruben Vardanyan, and this project has already been nominated for the prestigious international World Travel Award twice.

“Before the cable car was built, there were about 5 thousand tourists a year in Syunik, and now there are 150 thousand. This is reflected in tourist infrastruc-ture facilities: hotels, small restaurants, roadside cafes. People believe now that it is possible to open a business here, and they are going for it,” says Maria Butenko, director of the management company.
