In the shadow of the holy mountain Ararat, where according to the legend Noah's ark stopped and a new life began after the flood, there is Armenia, the land of pomegranates and apricots, the cradle of ancient civilization and the first state in history to make Christianity its state religion. With most of the territory neither in heaven nor on earth, but in the mountains, proud and honest Armenians have been building their civilization for three millennia.

Armenia is a small country, often neglected by tourists. Why? Maybe the reason lies in the fact that it is next to a bigger and more impressive Turkey, or because its first neighbor is Georgia, which is so much more popular.

Its inhabitants are one of the friendliest people in the world, and the state itself is a real hotbed of history. Some sites are 6,000 years old, and whether you are a fan of snow-capped mountain peaks or small hills, Armenia will simply leave you breathless. And if this is not enough reason for you to put it on your list, then you will be attracted by the fact that this is an extremely cheap destination where you will have a hard time spending all your money.

Get to know the capital Yerevan, the beautiful imaginary of Alexander Tumanian, the city of spacious boulevards, picturesque parks, culture, art and enjoyment. Here, be sure to visit the park in front of the Opera, Matenadaran - the museum of old manuscripts, the famous cognac factory Ararat or Noah, and from the tops of the Cascade you can see the Armenian capital in the palm of your hand. Relax with the sad sounds of duduk and traditional dances, which, together with pomegranate wine and the world-famous Armenian cognac, will make you feel like you are in another era and another world, and again, like at home.

Follow the traces of the holy apostles Thaddeus and Benjamin, and St. Gregory the Illuminator and visit some of the numerous medieval monasteries represented on the UNESCO World Heritage List. The Tatev Monastery, the center of medieval literacy and spirituality, but also the cradle of the national struggle in the 19th century, can be reached by cable car, which is part of the Guinness Book of Records. Here you will be amazed by the size and imposing image left by Lake Sevan, on the shores of which you can taste the traditional cuisine of Armenia, lake sig fish and some lavash.

The climate in Armenia is continental. It is worth mentioning that sunny and dry weather lasts from the beginning of July to the end of September, and then is the best time to visit. Always bring a jacket because in the evening the temperature can be much lower and fresher.

This ancient and mystical land is still โ€œunspoiledโ€œ by mass of tourists, and that, combined with its beauty, are the two main reasons why you should visit it as soon as possible.
