About Armenia

Learn about Armenia!

Armenia is a nation, and former Soviet republic, in the Armenian Highlands between Asia and Europe. Among the earliest Christian civilizations, it’s defined by religious sites including the 1st-century Greco-Roman Temple of Garni and 4th-century Etchmiadzin Cathedral, headquarters of the Armenian Church. Khor Virap Monastery is a pilgrimage site near biblical Mount Ararat, a dormant volcano and a national symbol of Armenia. The Armenian language is written in its own writing system, a 38-letter Armenian alphabet, introduced in 405 AD by the priest Mesrop Mashtots. The population of the Republic of Armenia is 3.0 million. Approximately 7.1 million Armenians live outside of Armenia.
