Armenia and Georgia constitute a cultural, historical, and religious intersection located at the crossroads between Europe and Asia. The boundless beauty of their landscapes, from the desert to the Caucasus Mountains, fertile valleys, picturesque land formations, basalt columns, rock sculptures, and waterfalls, will leave you speechless. Armenians and Georgians have cherished their artistic traditions from ancient times, which reflect a unique culture where aspects of everyday life are expressed in the most artistic fashion, in needlework, embellishments, carvings and design.
Armenia is often referred to as an open-air museum, with over 4,000 historical monuments throughout the country from prehistoric to Hellenistic times, and from the early to medieval Christian era. Churches bear artistic illustrations in frescoes and reliefs. Sculpting is everywhere – in nearly every city, town, and village in Armenia.
Georgia throughout the centuries was the object of rivalry between Persia, Turkey and Russia, before gaining independence in 1991. This special historical background with the recorded history of Georgia dating back to 2000 B.C., has given Georgia a unique and ancient cultural heritage, famed for its traditions of hospitality and cuisine.
