Last Updated: 24 December 2017
Situated between Europe and Asia, Armenia was the first Christian country on earth, so it shouldn’t be surprising that the ancient monasteries are the foremost attraction, followed by the beautiful landscape. The longest cable car in the world takes visitors up into the mountain peaks to the beautiful Tatev Monastery.  

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.
