Armenia: Why this under-explored destination belongs on your bucket list
This country will please both history buffs and nature lovers alike
Armenia is a landlocked nation in the South Caucasus region of Eurasia that is just as fascinating for its spectacular landscapes as it is for its history dating back millennia. From being the first state in the world to adopt Christianity as its official religion in the late third or early fourth century, to having the world's oldest winery, Armenia is a wonderland that deserves to be explored.
