Tea with the Molokans

EcoKayan Boutique Hotel & Camping offers travelers a unique opportunity to experience the hospitality of the Russian Molokans living in Armenia. Molokans belong to a spiritual Christian sect of Russian orthodoxy. They were exiled from Russian Empire to Armenia and neighboring countries in the early 19th century, where they settled down and lived since then, preserving their faith and traditions. Today, there are about 5000 Molokans living in Armenia, who add color to the monoethnicity of Armenia. During your stay at EcoKayan, you can be their guest in Dilijan, enjoy a delicious cup of tea and get to know their lifestyle and traditions.
