Our Experiences:  Armenia was the world´s first Christian nation, adopting it as an official religion in the third century AD.  It is also the easternmost frontier of the Roman empire. We came here tracing the early Christian history and to visit one of the oldest church buildind ( not a cavern )  ever found.  The views to the byblical Mt. Ararat ( Fron Noah´s Arch ) on the Turkish border was very illustrative. The country has also a rich culture, including  an unique afphabet and a particular gastronomy. There are very nice restaurants in Yerevan.

Hotels we love and recommend:  Marriott ( Yerevan )
