Vem Radio presents the radio version of the book "Capital Cities of Armenia" by Sergey Vardanyan. In a series of broadcasts, on the basis of studies by Armenian and foreign historians, scientists, and archaeologists, as well as on testimonies of travel authors, the history of the capitals of Armenia is outlined.
Armenian and foreign researchers often confused the ruins of Dvin with those of Artashat. The reason was the proximity of the two notable cities. Sometimes only the fortress and the hill were called Dvin, later the whole city, and sometimes the part of the Ararat valley and the river Arax were called Plain of Dvin and the River of Dvin. As a capital, Dvin was founded in the 30s of the 4th century, when the Armenian king Khosrov Kotak (330 - 338) moved the royal court from Artashat to Dvin.
