- To Admire Mount Ararat
It is worth going to Armenia already because here you can admire the majestic Mount Ararat in all its glory. Mount Ararat is a symbol of the motherland for all Armenians, and, despite the fact that it is now not on the territory of Armenia, it is from here that the most breathtaking and unforgettable view of this sacred mountain opens. According to the Bible, Noah’s ark rested on this mountain after the worldwide flood.

The history of Armenia stretches back 4110 years. This country is also the first state in the world to adopt Christianity as an official religion in 301. And now the unique architectural monuments of Christianity can be found everywhere! Armenian churches and monasteries do not have any magnificent and sophisticated design, like, for example, the Gothic creations, but they are so majestic that visiting them, you feel a special unique awe. It is impossible to fully understand the soul of Armenia without visiting these amazing places. Take an excursion to the monasteries of Geghard, Tatev, Noravank, Sevanavank, Haghpat, Echmiadzin Cathedral and feel Armenia from the inside in all its splendor.
