Jermuk is a mountain spa town and the center of the Jermuk Municipality of the Vayots Dzor Province in southern Armenia, at a road distance of 53 km east of the provincial capital Yeghegnadzor. It was considered one of the popular destinations for medical tourism in the Soviet Union.
More than a quarter of a century has passed since the collapse of the USSR and the familiar Soviet surroundings have been imperceptibly erased from our lives. Every year the Soviet Union is turning more and more into history, hiding behind siding panels, advertising banners and ventilation facades. The same Soviet hotels and sanatoriums that managed to find themselves in the “new economic realities” long ago rebuilt their apartments to “European standards”. Outdated “soviet” interiors in the 1990s and 2000s were mercilessly disposed of.
In Armenian town of Jermuk, you may find one old hotel that seemed to have descended from Soviet booklets. The hotel just closed for the winter as there is no central heating system in the building.
The hotel soviet interior decoration has not changed since the construction of the hotel in the 1970s.
A great place for those who are nostalgic for the Soviet Era and rest in sanatoriums by a trade union ticket.
