The prestigious French GEO magazine has dedicated 16 pages to a series of articles on Artsakh authored by Patrick Boitet (text) and Yvan Travert (photos) in its December issue.
Titled "Nagorno-Karabakh: The black garden of the Caucasus,” the articles present Artsakh as an unrecognized state rich in temples and gardens, which is open to the world and willing to show all its attractiveness.
The publication refers to the history of Artsakh starting from the 19th century, the Karabkh conflict and the aspects of the peace process, to the different branches of its economy, the tourism sector and everyday life.
The author notes that despite the uncertain status, the country’s economy is developing and registering an annual 10 percent growth.
“For Armenians, Artsakh is a place rich in of history, the heart of national resistance, a pilgrimage site thanks to its monasteries (Dadivank, Gandzasar), one of the most beautiful examples of the Armenian cultural heritage,” the author notes.
