Armenia country information and photo #Armenia – Armenia flag, maps, people, coloring pages and more. Armenia is a nation, and former Soviet republic, in the mountainous Caucasus region straddling Asia and Europe.

Another pilgrimage site is Khor Virap Monastery, in the foothills of Mt. Ararat, just across the border with Turkey.
