About Armenia

Armenian Flag

Armenia is a country located in Eastern Europe and was once part of the Soviet Union. Armenia boarders Georgia to its north, Turkey to the west, Azerbaijan to the east and Iran to the south.

Armenia was the first nation to  adopt Christianity as its official religion. The official language of the country is Eastern Armenian and some people speak Russian.

Culturally, Armenia is more European than Middle Eastern (I get asked this a lot). Summer was warm – hot in some places and winters are very cold.

Armenia is divided into regions called Marzs. I live in the smallest (and hottest) Marz, called Armavir.
