Добро пожаловать!

With a history dating back to 1500 BCE, Armenia today presents an enchanting combination of its Old World roots and modern-day lifestyle. 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.

For a country so breathtaking you’d anticipate that the locals would try to keep their hidden gem under lock and key, but you’d be wrong – Armenians welcome tourists with open arms eager for others to experience their slice of heaven. 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!
