Visit Armenia, a country whose sights, traditions and cultures are simply revelatory. Its often dramatic landscapes frame medieval monasteries, the delicious cuisine on offer sheds light on the country’s customs and heritage, and the warmth of Armenia’s locals is enough to make any traveler feel at home. From its 2,000-year-old Graeco Roman Temple of Garni to the UNESCO-listed ruined complex at Zvartnots Cathedral, there is much to discover in this monument-rich yet lesser-visited destination.
