Touch the Heart of ARMENIA
This amazing country has a lot to share, and believe, there’s not only one heart! The first one is definitely its beautiful capital – Yerevan. The second one is its highest mountain Aragats. Also, perhaps, its largest marketplace that pulses on the weekend. Or the local people whose hospitality and joy goes so naturally from their hearts. Or the music they play and the food they cook.
