Geography provided Sadarak with a privileged yet troubled location, near the point where Armenia, Turkey and Nakhcivan meet and just a few kilometres from Iran.

The town grew in importance due to the railway going north to Armenia but this proximity to Armenia almost meant its death, as it was totally evacuated in the heat of the 1992 fightings, but eventually re-occupied. The Armenians shelled the town, but the fear of Turkish intervention kept their forces at bay.

Nothing of this should be big news for Sadarak, as the main attraction of the town is an ancient fortress from the territory of Uratu, certainly silent witness to many a invader.

These days Sadarak is a quiet town, being in a dead end, as the trains run only south and as besides the fortress the only interesting thing to see is the snow topped mount Ararat in the distance.
