About this book

Armenia is in many ways an enigma: a strongly Christian country yet ruled for most of the last 2000 years by outsiders who were not Christian; a country where the symbol of Mount Ararat is omnipresent even though the biblical mountain is now in Turkey; and, a country where the cooking is Middle Eastern but the street life southern European.

Bradt Travel Guide: Armenia guides you to the country's many monasteries, Selim caravanserai, the field of 900 intricately carved cross-stones at Noratus, the petroglyphs of Mount Ishkhanasar and the museums and markets of Yerevan. There is extensive information about natural history and the arts as well all the practical information needed to explore this fascinating country.
