The World A Travel Way

Armenia

Armenia is a nation, and former Soviet republic, in the
mountainous Caucasus region straddling Asia and Europe. Among the
earliest Christian civilizations, it’s defined by religious sites
including the reconstructed Greco-Roman Temple of Garni and 4th-century
Etchmiadzin Cathedral, headquarters of the Armenian Church. Another
pilgrimage site is Khor Virap Monastery, in the foothills of Mt. Ararat,
just across the border with Turkey.
