Armenia is one of the most amazing and interesting countries in the world.
Armenia can rightfully be proud of its ancient and eventful history. We can see the border of Armenia already on the map of Herodotus of the 5th century, and the state of Great Armenia left its powerful cultural mark throughout the region.
Today, in terms of richness and cultural value of tourist routes, Armenia can argue with many countries of the world. The entire territory of the country can rightfully be called an “open-air museum”, because here, in an amazing way, the abundance of natural beauties is combined with many (more than four thousand) historical, architectural monuments of different periods of the country’s history.
A winter trip to Armenia can give you everything: rest on the background of beautiful landscapes, restoration of strength and health at resorts and sightseeing of interesting sights.
