Located in a mountainous region between Europe and Asia, Armenia is a country of amazing nature and centuries-old traditions. Here you can find a lot of Europe and plenty of Asia, yet the unique national flavors dominate.
The first thought that comes to one’s mind when they hear the word “Armenia’ is apricot or Ararat brandy. Our partners who visit Armenia, are always positively impressed by the fact that besides apricots and brandy, this country has a lot more to offer.
Planning your 1st visit to Armenia? Below are the top things you should do in Armenia.
Explore Yerevan, the capital of Armenia
Yerevan is a European-style city that attracts many tourists nowadays. Fine architecture, delicious food, ancient history and culture, day-time offerings, and nightlife options are just a handful of the reasons why it is a popular travel destination these days.
To get the most of this vibrant city, you should have breakfast in Cascade, spend your evening in one of the wine houses in Saryan street, walk around the city center, quench your thirst from the drinking fountains called “pulpulaks”, visit some museums and art galleries, enjoy the fine architecture of centuries-old churches, admire the graffiti art in the backyards of the buildings.
Discover the countryside of Armenia
As you move out of Yerevan, you’ll be impressed by the fact that Armenian landscapes in the countryside are quite different compared to the capital. The breathtaking nature made of high mountains, deep forests, beautiful lakes, and rivers has a lot to offer to adventurous travelers. Whether you are looking for some history and culture or some hiking adventures, Armenia offers the perfect escape.
Dilijan, Goris, Tsakhkadzor, and Ashtarak are must-visit cities in Armenia. The good thing about Armenia is that you can visit any place in Armenia and come back to Yerevan in the evening.
Get the local feel at the Vernissage and Gum Markets
All tourists in Armenia spend the last day of their vacation at the Vernissage- an open-air exhibition market where one can purchase old coins, carpets, stamps, books, jewelry, wood, and artworks. The perfect place to buy some gifts!
Gum Market is another destination that allows visitors to experience the true flavors of Armenia. Tourists enjoy the scene of the neatly organized fresh and dried fruits, veggies, blocks of cheese, and herbs. This market tells a lot about Armenia.
Eat local food
The culinary traditions in Armenia are a good reflection of the country’s history and culture. Tolma, Mante, Harissa, Khorovats, Ghapama are must-try dishes in Armenia. You should also try local appetizers, including basturma and sujuk. Tourists also enjoy local pastries, such as gata and baklava.
Armenians have their own bread called lavash (a flatbread baked in an underground oven). No festive table is served without lavash.
Along with the taste of the dishes, our guests also value the restaurant and café culture in Armenia.
