Smithsonian Magazine: Explore Armenia’s Medieval Monasteries in Interactive 360-Degree Panoramas

Smithsonian Magazine: Explore Armenia’s Medieval Monasteries in Interactive 360-Degree Panoramas. “Today, the Armenian landscape is dotted with spectacular churches, the most notable of which date back to the medieval period when the development of communal monasteries transformed these remote locations into centers of art and learning. Today, many of these historic monasteries are still off the beaten path, perched overlooking vast gorges or hidden away in forested valleys. This is part of what the 360GreatArmenia VR app and website is trying to solve for by making virtual tours available from anywhere. In addition to the Khor Virap Monastery​, the project has captured more that 300 virtual reality tours of ancient sites within modern Armenia.”
