Armenia is one of the oldest countries in the world. Scientific research, archaeological finds, old cuneiform inscriptions, ancient maps and even the Sacred Bible give a lot of evidence that the Armenian Highlands is one of the cradles of civilization. In ancient times, the Egyptians and Sumerians believed that wisdom and science descended on them from the Armenian Highlands.
To say that Armenia is the bearer of ancient culture, to say nothing. People lived here before the Stone Age. Over the centuries, they have become a civilized culture, and this culture has turned into what Armenia today represents to the world. It would be appropriate to mention that in 2007 a 6100-year-old winery, the oldest in the world, was discovered in the Areni cave complex located in the Vayots Dzor region in Armenia.
The capital of Armenia, Yerevan, was established in 782 BC, preceded by Rome (founded in 753 BC)! This makes Yerevan one of the oldest cities in the world, which still stands still!
Armenia in 301 AD. the first in the world adopted Christianity as a state religion. If you visit Armenia, you will find many monasteries, cathedrals, churches, chapels and much more. It is said that the oldest church in the world is also in Armenia (St. Echmiadzin Cathedral, 303).
When it comes to Armenia, we can not fail to mention the church. There are hundreds of them all over the country, the vast majority of them belong to the Middle Ages or earlier, and they amaze with their exceptional architecture
Welcome to Armenia!
