Nestled amongst the mountains of the southern Caucasus, Armenia is often overlooked by travellers, though as the first country in the world to adopt Christianity, there is much to be discovered in its wealth of history and culture. Begin your journey through this fascinating country in the capital Yerevan, tasting ArmeniaÃ¢Â‚¬Â„¢s famous brandy and learning how to make traditional Armenian cuisine. Marvel at the unique architecture of ancient churches, monasteries and fortresses, from Khor Virap to Noravank, with the stunning backdrop of Mount AraratÃ¢Â‚¬Â„¢s snowcapped peaks. Discover the ancient cave village of Khndzoresk before taking a ride on the worldÃ¢Â‚¬Â„¢s longest cable car to Tatev Monastery. Follow in the footsteps of the Silk Road travellers as you journey through the Selim Pass, and witness the changing colours of Lake Sevan, one of the largest alpine lakes in the world. Visit the Armenian Genocide Memorial Museum, and learn how Armenia has emerged from its tragic past as a country of remembrance and reflection with an optimistic future.
