Armenia lies across the border between Asia and Europe, and is host to a rich historical culture. The country is bordered by Turkey, Georgia, Iran and Azerbaijan. The country is host to a wealth of Christian history, as one of the world's first officially Christian country.

Armenia has good domestic public transport links. These are mostly by bus as trains are quite slow. International transport links are more limited. This is in part due to certain closed borders. Armenians are generally quite accommodating to tourists. It is a mountainous country, geographically in Asia, but is arguably of Eastern European culture.
