Description Change this

Gevorg Kotchar realized in the 60s the famous guesthouse of the Armenian Writers' Union at Lake Sevan. After artificial draining of the Lake Sevan, which started in the Stalin era, the water level fell about 20 metres, and the island transformed into a peninsula. At the southern shore of this newly created peninsula, Gevorg Kotchar built the guesthouse of the Armenian Writers' Union.
