As UAE residents start to make plans for the upcoming long weekend, one intriguing European destination is suddenly coming into its own – cultural gem Armenia.

Nestled in the South Caucasus, Armenia is winning Middle East travellers over with its rich tapestry of history, culture, and stunning landscapes. The country’s scenic marvels range from the serene shores of Lake Sevan to the rugged slopes of Mount Aragats.

Just a short three-hour flight from the UAE, Armenia packs a lot of punch into its small size and boasts a remarkable array of attractions.

The capital Yerevan is a particular delight, brimming with a vibrant cafe culture and boasting a millennia-old history. Nearby ancient monasteries like Geghard and Noravank, carved into dramatic rock formations, invite exploration.

“Armenia is indeed emerging as a captivating destination for the UAE market. While only a short flight away, Armenia presents a blend of culture, nature, adventure, and delightful cuisine. The allure of witnessing enchanting snowfall during winter adds a magical touch, attracting travellers seeking diverse and memorable experiences,” commented Sisian Boghossian, Head of Tourism Committee of Armenia.

Meanwhile, for adventure enthusiasts and adrenaline junkies, it also has an incredible range of activities on offer:
