Armenia

 

On a trip to Armenia, you will frequently be reminded that Armenia was the world’s first officially Christian country. You will have a hard time forgetting this as a tourist, since countless monasteries are among Armenia’s premier tourist attractions. Fortunately for those who might otherwise suffer monastery fatigue, many of these monasteries are built in places of incredible natural beauty, making the sites of monasteries like Tatev, Noravank, Haghartsin, Haghpat and Geghard well worth a visit even without the impressive, millennia old monasteries found there.

Talk

Armenian is the only official language in Armenia, which is one of the most unique languages in the world. However, the vast majority of Armenians are conversational in Russian, due to Armenia formerly being part of the Soviet Union. English is becoming more widely spoken, particularly in Yerevan; however, outside capital, most people will still not speak much or any English.
