Kapan city, former Ghapan, is the regional center of Syunik. The city is located on the Kapan River.

 

It is probable that at first Kapan was just a settlement. From the 10th century historians mention about Kapan city. In the end of the 10th century the town became the capital of Syunik Kingdom. Being located in the deep valley, Kapan has a unique microclimate; approximate temperature in summer is 38-40 degrees, minimum temperature in winter is 10-15 degrees. 

 

There are hotel complexes, rest houses, rich cultural heritage here: Tatev monastery, Vahanavank and other historic-cultural monuments. The region has great potential in ecotourism
