Armenia has all the potential to be included among top tourism destinations in the world. Armenian Highland as the cradle of civilization has left us such historical values which are unique over the world and do not have their replica. We have values to demonstrate to all tourists having their holiday in Armenia with the intention of exposing a new world.
Having resided in Armenian Highland since the onset of its history the Armenian people have passed through all historic eras and have left a great historical-archaeological heritage:
The artifacts dating back to Early and Middle Bronze centuries claim the high level of the development of jewelry, silversmithing, pottery and other crafts.
Stones have always been the silent witnesses of our history and when the skilled hands of our ancestors touched them, they turned into monuments, dragons, birds, and later to “embroidery” graceful cross-stones. The true business cards of our culture, tens of thousand cross-stones (khachkars in Arm.) in the UNESCO list of Intangible Cultural Heritage erect in almost every corner throughout Armenia to eternalize significant historical events. These elegant stone embroideries have always symbolized the maintenance of Christianity and cultural revival of Armenia.
The countryside of Armenia with its unique deep gorges, erecting high cliffs and medieval monasteries makes an ideal perfection of architectural structures and forms seen in the panorama of fabulous nature. Arrange eco tours in Armenia to enjoy the views of picturesque nature environment and rocks:
