Welcome to Armenia! This small but mighty country is full of wonders, from its stunning mountain scenery to its fascinating ancient history.

Begin your journey in the capital city of Yerevan, a bustling and vibrant city with a rich cultural heritage. Take time to explore its historic sites, like the picturesque Cascade complex and the iconic Republic Square. Be sure to try some of the delicious local cuisine, such as khorovats (BBQ) or basturma (air-dried beef).

Then, venture out into the countryside of Armenia. Step back in time as you explore medieval monasteries, old fortresses and ancient ruins scattered throughout the mountains. Enjoy breathtaking views of Lake Sevan, the largest lake in the Caucasus region. And don’t miss out on a chance to visit Khor Virap monastery—the site where St. Gregory the Illuminator was imprisoned for 13 years before converting Armenia to Christianity in 301 AD.

Finally, pay your respects at one of Armenia’s most sacred sites—Garni Temple. Built in 77AD, it is the only Greco-Roman style temple still standing in Armenia today. Nearby are the stunning basalt cliffs of Geghard Monastery,
