About Armenia


Armenia Flag
The map shows Armenia, a landlocked, mountainous country situated in the Caucasus at the crossroads of Eastern Europe and Western Asia, east of Turkey and north of Iran. Other border countries are Georgia to the north and Azerbaijan to the east.

With an area of 29,743 kmĀ², Armenia is just slightly smaller than Belgium, or somewhat smaller than the U.S. state of Maryland.

The highest peak in Armenia is Mount Aragats with a height of 4,090 m (13,419 ft); the stratovolcano is located in the Aragatsotn province, northwest from Yerevan.
Armenia's largest body of water is Lake Sevan (Sevana lich), one of the largest high-altitude fresh-water lakes in the world. Along with Lake Urmia (Iran) and Lake Van (Turkey), Lake Sevan was considered one of the three great lakes of the historical Armenian Kingdom, the 'Seas of Armenia.' The dominant Armenian Highland to the east of Anatolia is a plateau with a mean altitude of 1,700 m, consisting of a complex set of mountain ranges, volcanic peaks, valleys, lakes, and rivers. The plateau is a major water reservoir of the Middle East; it is the headwaters of two significant rivers, the Euphrates and the Tigris.

Armenia has a population of just 3 million people (in 2015). Armenia's predominant religion is Christianity; it was the first country to adopt Christianity as a state religion. The capital and largest city is Yerevan. There are two other major cities, Gyumri and Vanadzor.

Armenia’s international airport is Zvartnots International Airport (IATA code: EVN), located near Zvartnots, 12 km (7.5 mi) west of Yerevan.
