Stepanakert Overview

You can only go there from Armenia. Take a minibus (Marshrutka) from Kilikya Avtokayan (bus terminal, get there from any bus stop on Mesrop Mashtots Poghota, near Opera with minibus 15, 15 minutes, 100 Dram), it was about 6 hours in both directions. Several leave in the morning when full. Goris and Tatev Monastery would be on the way, but appearently no direct minibuses to Goris.
Attention you can't go to Aserbeidshan with a stamp from Nagorny Karabach. The bus journey was very good (the marshrutky back had very filthy windows and not much to see).

The most interesting place there is Shush, a fortified town on a hilltop 9 km from Stepanakert with a real nice 17. century church, unfortunatly also some Soviet style apartment blocks. There is also a quite nice looking Hotel Shushi just above the church, from 14000 Dram.
Get there by bus from the Stepanakert bus terminal, every 30 minutes.
