“Protection Service” NCSO has adopted a new policy of developing tourism in its’ museum-reservations.
The visitors of “Garni”, “Zvartnoc”, “Metsamor” and other museum-reservations should leave Armenia not only with bright impressions about our rich cultural heritage, but also should take one particle of it with them. For this reason new ways of cooperation are being spotted between the “Protection Service” NCSO and “Kharabakh carpet” organization, the director of which was in NCSO recently.
Sevak Khachatryan, the director of “Kharabakh carpet” introduced the history of Artsakh’s carpet industry and their organization’s product. In Stepanakert’s, Hadruts’s and Berdzor’s factories are produced mainly Armenian and particularly carpets typical to the unique culture of Artsakh. They are different: from a few meteres to the size of souvenires and can satisfy even the most whimsical customer. In Khachatryan’s words carpets of Artsakh are very popular abroad as well.
Ara Tarverdyan, the director of NCSO approving the idea of cooperation mentioned that the carpets can be presented to the visitors in the territory of Zvartnoc historical-cultural museum-reserve.
“On the road to the temple, next to the parking area the carpets can be presented. I’m sure they will interest our foreign visitors and we will succeed in that case”, added Ara Tarverdyan.
In his words the format of the cooperation can be expanded and while demonstrating them, carpet makers can also be involved, presenting the whole process and will give a chance to the tourists to also get involved in it.
NCSO’s Director and the head of “Kharabakh Carpet” duscussed the possibility of disposing tenting pavilions.
In Ara Tarverdyan’s words it would be desirable to depict “Garni”, “Zvartnoc”, “Amberd”, “Metsamor” and other pearls of our cultural heritage on the carpets.
