Armenia

Situated along the route of the Great Silk Road, Armenia is a landlocked country of rugged mountains, great lakes and extinct volcanoes. Armenia has a dry tropical climate and for much of the year, days are clear and sunny. Summers are hot here and the temperature fluctuates between +22C to +36C; winters are cold with average temperatures of -1C to -15C. Culturally, historically and politically Armenia is considered to be a part of Europe but its location in the southern Caucasus, on the conventional boundary between Europe and Asia, means that it spans two continents. Endowed with rich cultural heritage, Armenia was the first country to officially adopt Christianity in the IV century (301 AD) and visitors enjoy its many fascinating monasteries and archaeological sites as well as its beautiful mountainous countryside.
