Armenia is not a big country (7 times smaller than Belarus territory), that suffered much from the Azerbaijani-Armenian conflict and its economy still has not restored. But it has enormously rich Orthodox heritage. Its cognac is popular world wide but its wonderful pomegranate wine is not. Like in Azerbaijan and Georgia Armenian people are very kind and hospitable.
Some mobile phone photos of the trip to Armenia.
At the Armenian boundary
At the station
Resembles Minsk of the 90s…
In a popular cafe
Inventor of the Armenian alphabet
Heathen temple in Garni settlement
Ancient Gegard complex in the rock
Sevan lake (second with the largest reserve of fresh water after Titicaca)
Still like in the 90s – horrible cafes and music on the coast.
Working filling station, how do you like it?
