Why Visit Armenia

Armenia is an experience you’ll remember. History, great food and idyllic scenery are just the beginning… Here, you can gaze upon the ancient petroglyphs on the slopes of Mount Sevsar or watch the sunset over the ruins of Zvartnots Temple against the background of biblical Ararat. History geeks can pack an itinerary visiting UNESCO World heritage listed monasteries of Haghpat and Sanahin in Lori Province or stunningly preserved Etchmiadzin cathedral which was built right after Armenia adopted Christianity as a national religion in 301.
Enthusiasts of fine food and drink will appreciate the local cuisine, for Armenians have perfected the art of cooking simple yet delicious meals for centuries. A visit to Armenia is also a chance to develop a taste for excellent dry and semi-sweet wines which have been made with the best traditions of this old wine-making nation.
