Shirak is one of Armenia’s most diverse districts, with semi desert “wastelands” leading to the snowbound crests of Mt. Aragats. First recorded in Urartian inscriptions found on stone cliffs near Giumri, the region reached it heyday when it was a part of the Bagratuni kingdom (8th-11th centuries) and then again in the 19th century when Giumri, its capital, became the most important city in the country; capital of the “Armenian Belle Époque”.
