This small patch of Eurasian land is only slightly larger than the U.S. state of Maryland; however, it has a long history dating back thousands of years. You can come here to discover the oldest churches anywhere in the world, lay eyes on Mount Ararat of Genesis fame, or admire a fragment of Noah’s ark. Perhaps you want only to trace the lines of one of the world's oldest languages and hear its sounds spoken out loud. Maybe it’s the food that calls to you. You may want to visit this country for any one of these things, but what you’ll discover in the process is one of the best travel destinations on the globe.
