As you travel around the country, you’ll discover everything from ancient monasteries to modern metropolises all nuzzled between stunning mountain ranges and crystal-blue alpine lakes.

So without further ado, I’d like to share with you the Armenia I was lucky enough to explore. Here are 20 photos to inspire you to pack your suitcase and check it out for yourself!
