The country said to be the first Christian nation boasts an astonishing number of churches, cathedrals and monasteries, some of which we explore during our visit here. Take an Explore holiday to Armenia and a selection of highlights await you from the Roman temple in Garni to a Sunday service at Armenia’s holiest monastery to witnessing the ever changing hue of Lake Sevan. You will also have an opportunity to visit the Matenadaran library which houses over 17,000 rare manuscripts, walk on the slopes of Mount Aragats to Ambred Fortress, wander the museum streets of Dilijan town, marvel at the outstanding ecclesiastical architecture at the Monastery of Haghpat, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and if you’re lucky to get a clear day, view the silhouette of Turkey’s Mt Ararat across the Ararat Plain.
