Top Descriptions

Most people have probably heard something about the horrors of the Armenian Genocide, but few really know much about the country today. One of the earliest nations to officially adopt Christianity and the last remaining vestige of ancient Anatolia, Armenia is a small, landlocked, mountainous and mostly high-altitude country on the border of and that holds steadfast onto its culture and traditions. Riddled with historical sights and some excellent opportunities for outdoor activities (particularly hiking), it’s no wonder that tourism has been on the increase here in recent years. Yet the population of Armenia still continues to decline, and those that do remain (though friendly and welcoming) struggle with general poverty and high unemployment. Indeed, Armenia isn’t the cleanest or most developed of countries, but it does certainly offer a fascinating insight into traditional Orthodox and is well worth at least a couple of weeks of your time.

Top Tips

There’s not a great deal of English at the moment in Armenia, so either learn some Armenian or brush up on your Russian if you’re planning on getting really rural as it’s basically a lingua franca here. Saying that, it’s quite possible to travel in Armenia without either, as someone in your accommodation will usually be able to communicate in rudimentary English.
While it’s very possible to base yourself in and take day trips to many great sights and locations (such as , or the ), do try to get out of the capital. You’ll get a much better feel for the country, and some of the most interesting places to stay are in the rural parts.
Relations between Armenia and Azerbaijan are tense to say the least, and neither country is particularly happy with the other. Stay abreast of any unfolding situations and perhaps avoid bringing up the situation too much with locals.
Armenian food is delicious, particularly khorovats (BBQ) which is done very well here. You’ll be hard pressed to find anything but Armenian food here though, except for in the capital which has some great restaurants on offer.
