A Tiny Treasure: Sacred & Secular
Landlocked Armenia sits at the heart of the South Caucasus mountain range. It was the first country in the world to adopt Christianity as its national religion in the year 310, and signs of those Christian roots are evident in many of its historical attractions. Among them, Echmiadzin Cathedral and Geghard, Haghpat, and Sanahin monasteries are recognized as UNESCO World Heritage sites for their remarkable medieval architecture. Visitors to Armenia can expect stunning mountain views, unique cultural traditions, and friendly locals who are eager to share them.
