As tourism expands in Armenia, more and more visitors are traveling to this country. This is a landlocked country located between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea. It is one of the oldest countries in the world. Once you see how the evidence of civilizations stands out against the stony background, you will develop a greater appreciation of how hard the people here have had to work for their living. The country is a splash of color with orchards and vineyards.
The towns and villages of Armenia are perched on mountaintops from which you have a spectacular view. However, there is very little infrastructure for tourists outside of the capital city of Yerevan so this is usually the base of operations for tourists. You can arrange day trips to places outside the city, returning each night.
If you visit Yerevan in the spring or summer, you will feel as if you are in the midst of a never ending party. The people stay out on the streets until late at night drinking tea or chatting with friends. This is because the days are hot and the temperature is cooler. You will find stalls selling all kinds of pastries, as it doesn't get dark until late either.
There are many tourist attractions in this city of Armenia. Visit the monument commemorating the victims of the Armenian Genocide, called the Tsitsernakaberd, which is located at the top of the park. There is also a museum devoted to the genocide at this park as well. See the exhibits at the Cascade, which are the massive white steps leading to a beautiful park. Take in a performance of the opera, engage in activities at the sports complex or admire the many statues throughout the city.
If you love shopping, you will love being in Yerevan with the many different stores and small boutiques. There are many restaurants serving both traditional and European foods. For nightlife, there are several popular dance clubs, a cabaret as well as trendy pubs and lounges. Your visit to Armenia is one you won't soon forget.
