  Abstract Astrotourism is not a new topic, but it is certainly a title that has been in the forefront of tourismand astronomy for less than two decades. For nearly half a century, observatories and sciencecenters have been opening their doors to the public on special occasions, such as Astronomy Day.However, for less than a decade, astrotourism has been the constant presence of tourists alongsideprofessional astronomers, especially on weekends. They have made it possible by following allthe principles. Until the early 1990s, one of the most important countries in the world to hostthe world's largest astronomical observatories was the Soviet Union. The Caucasus region in theformer Soviet Union hosted very important observatories due to its high altitudes, pure nature, andvery low amount of light pollution and, of course, the proper weather in warm seasons. Byurakanin Armenia, Abastumani in Georgia, Shamakhi in Azerbaijan, and BTA-6 in Russia are the fourmain collections left from that period. Fortunately, nearly two decades after the independenceof the countries in the region, the restoration and updating of these observatories have been onthe agenda. One of the helping arms to accelerate the revival of these observatories is to takeadvantage of the potential of astrotourism; especially with the location of these three countriesnear Iran, which has one of the largest astronomy enthusiast communities in the region.
