Armenia Travel Guide : Ancient Monasteries, Candle-lit Churches and High-walled Forts. Hrsg.: Turtle Travel Edition
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikivoyage or other free sources online. Much of the current tourist traffic comprises diaspora Armenians seeking a slice of their homeland. Their high standards enticed some international hotel chains and caused overdevelopment in places like Sevan. Yet it s still easy to escape to hidden gems, including stalactite-filled caves and summer villages inhabited by Yezidi Kurds and Armenian shepherds. The Debed Canyon is rich with history and culture, and Goris is a fascinating time-warp town that warrants a few days' exploration. As most travellers whiz through on a brief side trip between other places, serious explorers will have the best sights to themselves. Although Armenians carry a lot of psychological baggage from a traumatic 20th century, you ll hardly notice it. The rapidly modernizing capital, the boutique tourism industry and the warm welcome you ll receive everywhere seems to belie the country s reputation for tragedy. This book offers information on Armenia and its most notable places.
