Dvin is located 9 km North-West of Artashat. With its nearly a thousand-year-old history the city is one of the most prominent and comparatively well researched settlements in Armenia, one of the 12 capitals of our country. 

People started to inhabit this settlement from times immemorial. Capital Dvin was built during the reign of Armenian king Khosrov Kotak (330-338) in 335. The city became the new capital under the rule of Arshakuni dynasty (a royal dynasty). In a short period of time the population grew up to 100 thousand. The capital has two-layered defensive walls, temples, and towers. 

Today people are engaged in gardening; they grow grape, apricot, peach and apple. Vegetables are cultivated as well: tomato, pepper, eggplant, and corns.  Cattle breeding and poultry farming are also developed.
