What comes to your mind saying Armenia is that it is a country laid on some rocky mountains and forested hills! Mountains which are difficult to climb up, which you compare with some freedom and height, vicinity with the sky, etc. But, have you ever thought of watching inside the mountains and not outside? Have you ever thought about exploring the mountain caves and rock churches? If you did so, you will never regret visiting Armenia. Armenia is a country where the boundary of the reality and myth is invisible. A country which existence is a myth, but the history is real. Armenians are ancient people in an ancient country. Their homeland is the plateau sprawling around the biblical Mount Ararat, the mountain on which according to the legend, Noah’s Ark came to rest after the global flood (Genesis 8:4). In those highlands more than 3000 years the State of Armenia has struggled for its existence, and recently, after the collapse of the Soviet Union, September 1991, has restored its independence.Armenia is an ancient but at the same time modern and historical country with great history, rich culture, traditional cuisine, warm hospitality and wonderful nature. The capital of the Republic of Armenia is Yerevan, and it’s one of the oldest cities in the world, it was founded in 782 BC and originally was called Erebuni.
