Armenia

The landlocked Republic of Armenia is a Eurasian neighbor of Turkey, Iran, Georgia, and Azerbaijan and its Nakhchivan exclave. Armenia's tightly knit population claims descent from the Biblical Noah's great great grandson Hayk. Typical questions relate to the country's ancient legacies in art, literature, music, and religion; industry and manufacturing based economy; pristine appeal to mountain climbers and skiers; and troubled politics with Turkey and Azerbaijan.
