Armenia

Home of rugged mountains, extinct volcanoes and misty valleys, Armenia lies in the middle of the Caucasus, landlocked between Turkey, Georgia, Iran and Azerbaijan. Its jagged landscape covered with dense forest and medieval monasteries perched atop cloudy cliffs give it a charm that can only be described as epic.
Picturesque towns fill the countryside and stretch along Lake Sevan, Armenia’s largest lake and a joy to visit during the summer months.
For a more urban vibe, the capital city Yerevan is the place to be. Broad, tree-filled avenues filled with outdoor cafes boast an eclectic street life, with people gathering around the famous musical fountains in the Republic Square. And near the Armenian Opera Theatre, late-closing restaurants serving typical local delicacies will no doubt leave you a fan of Armenia’s mouth-watering cuisine.
