From the vibrant capital city of Yerevan through the stunning natural landscapes of Dilijan National Park and Lake Sevan, to the quirky Gyumri in the north.

I’ve also visited ancient monasteries and churches like Geghard and Tatev, where you can immerse yourself in the country’s rich religious heritage.

Do not forget about Khor Virap – the place where Christianity in Armenia started.

And Garni Temple – the easternmost temple of the Roman Empire!
