This country is one of the officially open countries for Russians. Here, without any visas or quarantines, everyone who bought a ticket for a direct flight from Moscow to Yerevan and made a test for the absence of covid 72 hours before departure is waiting for entry.


We publish the top 7 reasons why you should go to Armenia.

Find the oldest shrines

Christianity appeared in Armenia even earlier than in Rome. It is not surprising that the entire map of the country is literally “strewn” with prayerful places, and local monasteries boast incredible artifacts – for example, a spear that was pierced by Jesus Christ at the end of suffering on the cross. You can check the condition of this artifact in the Geghard Monastery. Another religious landmark is Virap, where, according to legend, Gregory the Illuminator languished for his faith for 13 years. For pagans and just lovers of history, Armenia “prepared” the temple of the sun in Garni, which is somewhat similar to the mini-Parthenon.

Take the longest cable car in the world

An almost six-kilometer cable car leads to the Tatev Monastery. It is called “Wings of Tatev” and it is officially entered in the book by the Guinness record. Near the monastery, whose age is almost 12 centuries, there is a natural bridge called Devil’s. There will be wow footage from the drone, so if you have one, feel free to take it.

Visit the cave city

Khndzoresk is one of the most unusual tourist sites in Armenia. It was inhabited until the middle of the last century, when the last inhabitants left its walls. Its temples are dilapidated, and the grotto-dwellings are empty – a dead, but mesmerizing place.

Get to know Yerevan

The trip will not be complete without a visit to the capital. Her appearance is non-standard: in a pink haze with a cognac flavor, Yerevan meets those who have come to walk along its noisy streets. The walls gave a pink haze to the city – a lot was built of pink volcanic porous tuff, as for the cognac flavor, the “Ararat” winery is responsible for that. Acquaintance with the city begins with the Grand Cascade – these are stairs, fountains and modern sculptures.

We visit the Republic Square and the Historical Museum, look into the only secluded Blue Mosque in this city, and then “Vernissage” – a destination for fans of bracholas and markets.

Climb to the heights

There are two volcanoes in Armenia that are interesting for collectors of peaks: these are the four-peaked Aragats (northern peak – 4090 m) and Azhdahak (3597 m). They climb Aragats for the sake of visiting the highest point of Armenia, but the views from Azhdahak are no worse, although it is inferior in height. There is everything – a caldera, many extinct peaks, a romantic fog … And by the way about the views and peaks: despite the fact that the legendary Mount Ararat, to which Noah allegedly moored on the Ark, is located in Turkey, it can be seen from Armenia – including from Azhdahak …

View the largest lake in the Caucasus

Lake Sevan is not a small mountain lake, but a large reservoir, on which yachts and steamboats go, in which trout swims and which shines at sunset. This is one of those moments when you freeze from the beauty of nature. On the lake there is not only food for the body: on its north-western shore there is the Sevanavank monastery. It was once a lonely complex on the island, but due to falling water levels, it has become a temple on the peninsula.

Relax in a spa atmosphere

Jermuk is a resort town where mineral waters gush, hot springs lure into their warm waters and the surrounding waterfalls make noise. Those who want to walk along the Arpi gorge and see the 13th century Noravank monastery complex also come here. The place is ideal for SPA, relaxation and relaxation after a rich program in this country.
