Country-by-Country for Travelers, Trips, and Tours.

Why Armenia?

Some reasons why you might consider traveling to Armenia(provided by Wikivoyage):
Armenia (Armenian: Հայաստան Hayastan) is a landlocked country in the Caucasus. Once the center of an empire, this former Soviet republic straddles the line between Europe and Asia. Armenia has a rich, ancient history, and it is most famously known for being the first country in the world to adopt Christianity as an official religion.
A small and mountainous, landlocked country, Armenia almost never fails to surprise visitors. The mountain passes, valleys and canyons make it feel much larger, and Lake Sevan provides a welcome sight, with endless water visible from its southern shores. Given the geographic variation, there is also much variety of climate — there are barren lunar landscapes, forests, snow-capped peaks and alpine lakes. Five percent of the country's surface area consists of Lake Sevan (Sevana Lich), the largest lake in the Lesser Caucasus mountain range.
