Armenia, a landlocked country, is located in the mountainous Caucasus region located between Asia and Europe. Although it has suffered many tragedies in its long history Armenia is an emerging popular destination for the traveller. You’ll find friendliness among these sociable, down-to-earth people, who are determined not to let their past sadness hold them back from being welcoming. For the visitor highlights include ancient monasteries, beautiful old churches and high-walled fortresses with the main boulevards of the city oozing high fashion and inviting you to drop into the many cafes to relax over a drink or two. Whatever you are looking for to make your visit that bit more special, Holiday Hamster will help you with all the arrangements.
The rapidly modernising capital, Yerevan; at the literal heart of the country, is the centre of the rapidly increasing tourism industry and you can be assured of receiving a warm welcome everywhere you go. The city is surrounded by steep hills and ravines and has many attractive 19th-century Russian edifices in its central heart, plus lovely areas of parkland and attractive brick squares. Whilst its museums and monuments would keep you busy in the daytime the cultural life is also powerful for a city of its size, with dozens of theatres, concert halls and galleries as well as having lots of live music venues for the visitor to explore.
Travel outside the city where Northern Armenia beckons the visitor to its rugged highlands around the lovely Lake Sevan. Or why not take a trip into Armenia’s more remote southern region which is full of ancient monasteries, forests and high meadows and pastoral villages where you can try the home made fruit vodkas. It’s also a great area to explore various out-of-the-way trails by foot, horse or in four wheel drive transport. Whatever your preference Holiday Hamster will be pleased to help make your holiday in Armenia full of happy memories.
