Armen Tour

No area on the globe is so fascinating for today’s scholars as the Near East: fascinating because it was the cradle of some of the oldest civilizations ,many of which are not more than just names to us now. Many nations and kingdoms rose and fell through centuries of struggle. Throughout this the most persistent and long-living nation among them has been the Armenian. Stone Age remnants found in Armenia prove that the country has been inhabited long before human records. Noah’s Ark came to rest as the Flood subsided from the Great Peak known as Mount Ararat.
Armenian tradition has preserved several legends concerning the origin of the Armenian nation. The most important one of them tells about Hayk, the eponymous hero of the Armenians who called themselves Hay and their country Hayastan. The neighboring nations called the people Armens or Armenians. Being one of the most ancient countries in the world along with Assyria, Babylon and Persia, it is also one of the oldest countries of human civilization. More than 15.000 historical monuments the oldest of which is 6000 years old prove the significance of Armenia as such.
