Lake Sevan is one of the largest fresh-water high-altitude lakes in the world. It is located at an altitude of 1,900m above sea level. The total surface area is 940 sq km, and the volume 34.0 billion cubic metres. It is fed by 28 rivers and streams. Only 10% of the outgoing water is drained by the Hrazdan (Razdan) river, while the remaining 90% evaporates.

The Sharambeyan Street in the centre, has been preserved and maintained as an "old town," complete with craftsman's workshops, a gallery and a museum. The city's population is steadily declining from the 23,700 reported in 1989 to an estimated 15,600 in 2009, but the Armenian government is planning to turn Dilijan into a regional financial capital, beginning with the move of much of the Central Bank's operations to Dilijan in 2013.
