Armenia


Armenia

Welcome to Armenia

Armenia has its special and unique image. It can be compared to a lady – a strict majestic beauty with a touch of noble grey hair of antiquity. The wrinkles on her "face" are the consequences of distressful past when Armenia had to defend the territory and sacred Christian faith. Her wise calmness gives you the feeling of another dimension: you start to appreciate the true meaning of life and nature.
Why? Perhaps, it is there that the LIFE itself started? After all, according to the biblical legend Mount Ararat (from 1920 is on territory of Turkey ) was the destination point of well-known Noah's Ark which saved terrestrial life after the Flood. One can compare the trip to Armenia with the travel back to the roots. It might become a pilgrimage, a chance to touch a relic. Holy places are everywhere there – temples, monasteries, churches – all of them testify on the firmness of Christian faith, and the pride of being the first to adopt Christianity as official religion.
Today the country has everything for tourism development: hotels are under construction, mountain ski resorts Vanadzor, Tsakhkadzor, Dilizhan and Ankavan are being renovated, balneal resort Арзни , tourist complexes on Sevan are being created. There, in Armenia, you can experience mountain-skiing, rafting, mountain stream fishing, healing mineral baths, hunting, and mountain-biking …
However, Armenia is especially valued by people who enjoy culture tourism. They are attracted there by tremendous beauty of nature, natural rest, exotic atmosphere of mountaineers' way of life, the hospitality of Armenian people and unique ancient culture of Armenians. Visiting places where great civilizations prospered, bloody battles raged, historical events of world importance occurred – isn't it a traveler's dream?
Armenia's exotic is indeed unique. Its ancient churches and castles, high-mountain lakes and rivers, majestic rocks, deep canyons hide thousand of stories mysteries.
Nowhere in the world are there such mountains, such ancient history, such beautiful female eyes, such divine cognac and such thin bread. “The most delicious meat is on bones, the best land is on stones” - say Armenians about their country and they are right.
Armenia – the most ancient country – stood on the routes connecting Europe and Asia. This not only the first ever Christian state but also one of the earliest countries on the earth - already in the 9 th – 6 th centuries BC the powerful state of Urartu existed on the territory of Armenia. Numerous epochs left their traces on its territory, so in terms of quantity of historical and cultural monuments this country can be considered as one of the most interesting in the Old World. Armenia is sometimes called “open-air museum”. There you will find ruins left from almost all ancient civilizations of the Old World, and numerous monuments of art and architecture make the country a keeper of culture masterpieces.
The ancient architectural monuments, original traditions and customs, delicious ethnic cuisine, exclusive arts and crafts and unique nature of places where high mountains are replaced by deep gorges, woods - by semi-deserts, and droughty plains - by snow-peaked mountains are waiting for you. Welcome to Armenia!
