Heavy with history, this petite country packs a captivating punch.
Stretching from its biblical past to its most recent conflicts, there is a rich seam of heritage here: this is the land of Noah’s Ark, after all. Crammed with natural beauty and with more ancient churches and monasteries than seems feasible, Armenia wears its historical significance with pride. Adventurous travellers looking for scenic bike rides and hikes will love the plentiful mountains, gorges and valleys, and when it’s time to take things at a more leisurely pace, a lively cafe culture provides ample opportunity for languid days spent milling around markets soaking up the unique Armenian culture.
