Between the Armenian Highlands in the north and the Lesser Caucasus in the south, Armenia is distinctly a mountain country. A good 90% of the land area is over 1,000 m.
Although the country is not bordered by the sea, it has very varied vegetation: seven of the ten most important geographical zones are found in Armenia alone.
In addition to the breathtaking nature, there is a very diverse culture in Armenia. Like no other country in the Caucasus, Armenia lies exactly in the geographical, political, and cultural melting pot between Europe and Asia – between Christianity and Islam. Armenia was the first country in the world to make Christianity the state religion, and that is something you can see and feel. The Armenian Apostolic Church plays a central role in the identity of the Armenian people.
