Travel to Armenia
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.
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.
There are many places of interest worth visiting in Armenia. Aside from the capital Yerevan for example Dilijan, the small city in the «Switzerland of Armenia». Another must-see is the monasteries Tatev and Khor Virap as well as the holy city of Echmiadzin (Vagharshapat). The Sewansee, located on 1,900 meters, is among the biggest mountain lakes in the wold. And the ski resort Zaghkadsor has to offer a lot in winter, too.

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

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.

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.
Rolf Wettstein (Switzerland)
I liked the landscapes a lot, and especially the impressive mountains. And that we met so many nice and hospitable people in these lonely areas was awesome.
Ahmed Murhaf (Syria)
I love the Caucasus region, especially Georgia! Baking Georgian traditional food like Khachapuri with locals was a great experience. I will be back for sure.
