The hospitality of Armenians is worth a special mention. An ancient Armenian proverb says: “A guest is a messenger of God” and “If a person stays in your house for three days - he is a guest, on the fourth day he is already a younger brother.” Many travelers who have visited different countries note that nowhere else they have seen such kindness, generosity and cordiality as in Armenia.

The Armenian civilization stretched from Persia to Eastern Europe and was home to many significant historical events such as the beginning of wine production and the first adoption of Christianity. This country has survived despite dozens of others and although it is now small and often impossible to see on the world map, it will provide you with a lot of uniqueness and will leave a long lasting impression.
