The snow capped peak of Mount Ararat is on the Turkish side of the border, but it towers over Armenia forming a backdrop to a country that has a history spanning three and a half thousand years. The Greco Roman ruins and ancient Christian churches bear witness to the antiquity of this country.
The first country on earth to make wine, Armenia has a well-developed wine and brandy industry.
Yerevan, the capital of Armenia, is famous for its beautiful architecture. Built in 782 BC, the old city is full of lovely old structures, cafes and pretty parks, whilst modern stores and restaurants are not far away.
