Known for being the first Christian country in the world, Armenia has a cultural history like no other. Although it’s a small country, there is plenty to see and do no matter what your interests are. The capital city of Yerevan has Soviet-era influences and is filled with ancient architecture. Quaint cafés, lively parks, and authentic Armenian restaurants can be found at every turn.

Situated in the Caucasus Mountain region, Armenia has a lot of land that remains untouched. When you’re ready to get away from city life, head over to Lake Sevan or Mount Ararat to enjoy stunning views of Armenia’s natural beauty. Its valleys, canyons, caves, forests, and mountains are sure to take your breath away. As you interact with the friendly locals, shop in the local markets, and gaze upon the impressive statues around the country, you’ll realize just how special this place is.
