HOLIDAYS AND TRADITIONS

Armenia - Holidays

In Armenia, there are few holidays, covered with such spirit of mischief and childishness, as Vardavar. Despite its serious origin (a holiday is the church one, and it is called the Transfiguration of the Lord), Vardavar is considered the funny and amusing holiday, because the main rite of this day is the sprinkling water on everything and everyone!

FOR TURIST

Vacations In Armenia

Set between the Black and Caspian Seas of western Asia, Armenia is well off the beaten travel path. Many travelers visit only briefly while en route to the larger tourist hubs of neighboring Iran or Turkey. However, from its white-capped peaks and gorgeous countryside to its hidden monasteries, ancient ruins and the surprisingly vibrant capital city of Yerevan, Armenia has enough cultural and natural attractions to keep travelers busy for much longer.

FOOD AND BEVERAGES

Armenian Cuisine

The glory of Armenian cuisine extends far beyond the country's borders. There is not a place on the post-Soviet territory (and even farther) where people do not know or love and cultivate Armenian cuisine.
