Travel to Armenia

Between the Armenian Highlands in the north and the Little 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 a 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. That 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.

Armenia

Capital: Yerevan

The most important pillar in the life of an Armenian is his or her family. Social life takes place in one's own home and over all generations.

Whereas in the past only special folklore groups were still dancing the traditional dances, today a trend can be observed in which even young women and men are dancing as their ancestors did. Dancing is usually done to Armenian folk music, which has become known through the work of Jiwan Gasparjan.

The Armenians are proud of their cuisine - and they have a very good reason to feel this way. They have very imaginative and varied dishes, so everybody can find a treat that appeals to them. And so, it may well be that on your journey through Armenia that you suddenly land on a gigantic table of a large local family. After all, the Armenians are world-famous for their hospitality.

Stephan Frey (Switzerland)

Skiing in Gudauri and Mestia was great. The snow is great, and the vast landscape is unique. We will be back.

Sharmistha Sen (India)

The eclectic architecture and breathtaking natural beauty of the Caucasian region would have remained unknown to me if not for this awesome MyCaucasus travel portal.

Simon Stahl (USA)

We had a great group. I still have contact with all six. We have already agreed that we will come back next year. Then it will be a wine tour through Kakheti.

Sylvana Flores (USA)

I will never forget our trip through the mountains of Tusheti. The landscape was unique, though the absolute highlights were the warm encounters with the locals.

Blog about Armenia

In our blog you find interesting news, stories and travel reports about Armenia.

Highlights of Georgia

MyCaucasus was created because we fell in love with the region and visited it over and over for many years. When we think back to the best moments on our trips in Georgia, Armenia or Azerbaijan, we do not think of luxury hotels, beaches or tourist hotspots. It is the encounters with the people and the hidden treasures of the Caucasus that have captured our hearts forever. We want to share this feeling with you.

Tbilisi, tha capital
