Country Details


Armenia, officially known as the Republic of Armenia, is a landlocked country situated in the South Caucasus region of Eurasia and is bordered by Turkey to the west, Georgia to the north, Azerbaijan to the east, and Iran to the south. Despite its landlocked status, the country is home to Lake Sevan, one of the largest freshwater, high-altitude lakes in the world. Armenia's capital city is Yerevan, which is both the largest city and the political, cultural, and economic heart of the nation. The official language is Armenian, but Russian is also a commonly spoken language, and the national currency is the Armenian Dram (AMD).

Armenia has a heritage that can be traced back to ancient times, with a history that includes the Urartu Kingdom, the Kingdom of Urartu, and the Kingdom of Urartu, as well as a rich tapestry of cultural, religious, and historical milestones. One of the most iconic symbols of Armenia is the biblical Mount Ararat, said to be the resting place of Noah's Ark. This mountain is located just across the border in modern-day Turkey, and it can be seen from Yerevan.

Armenia is a democratic republic with a parliamentary system of government. The President is the head of state, and the Prime Minister is the head of government. The National Assembly, Armenia's legislative body, plays a vital role in the nation's political landscape.

In recent years, Armenia has made significant strides in strengthening its democratic institutions and processes. The Velvet Revolution in 2018 marked a turning point, as peaceful protests led to a change in leadership and a renewed commitment to transparency and good governance.

Armenia has an active presence on the international stage. It is a member of the United Nations (UN) and various international organisations, contributing to global initiatives and development programs. The country has also been a part of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), an association of former Soviet republics, and maintains relations with numerous countries worldwide.

The country's economy has experienced periods of growth and transformation. While it faces challenges, including geopolitical complexities and the legacy of a devastating earthquake in 1988, the nation has shown resilience and adaptability.

Today, Armenia's economy is diverse, encompassing sectors such as agriculture, manufacturing, IT, and mining. The IT sector, in particular, has seen remarkable growth, earning Armenia the nickname "Silicon Mountains."

Tourism is also an emerging industry, as visitors explore Armenia's historical sites, including ancient monasteries, fortresses, and museums. The country's natural beauty, like Lake Sevan and the scenic landscapes of the Caucasus Mountains, attracts travellers, too.
