You can continue the trail through Saborna street and enter the unique Armenian church museum, where you can see the nail and a piece of the wooden board with the abbreviation in Latin INRI (Jesus the Nazarene, King of the Jews) which was nailed over the head of Jesus on the Crucifix. What is more, according to specialists, the museum possesses some of the richest collections worldwide, of artefacts related to the history of the Armenians.
