Activities :: "Intellectual Tourism" Project

Armenia, officially the Republic of Armenia, is a landlocked mountainous country in the Caucasus region of Eurasia. Armenia is an ancient country with prosperous opportunities for tourists. According to research, more than 680 000 tourists have visited Armenia in 2010. They are inspired by historical and architectural monuments and attractive museums.
The most significant fact about Armenia is that it is considered the first nation to have adopted Christianity as the state religion in a traditional date of c. A.D. The Armenian alphabet was created in 405 A.D. and since its creation, for 16 centuries Armenia, celebrates Translators Day. Moreover, an international team of archaeologists has discovered the world's oldest leather shoe. One thousand years older than the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt, the 5,500 year-old shoe was perfectly preserved by the cool, dry conditions in the sheep dung–lined cave in Armenia where it was found. On 23 October 2010 Guinness World Records longest cableway in Armenia, the 5.7km (3.5 miles) engineering feat spans from the spectacular Vorotan River Gorge to the country's ancient Tatev monastery. The link will allow year-round access to Armenia's ninth-century Tatev monastery complex, one of the country's most important religious centers and a major tourist attraction.
To ensure tourism and education components, the "Intellectual Tourism" summer school implements appropriate trainings by visiting Museums, Nature's wonders and Monasteries in Yerevan, Gyumri, Vanadzor, and Armavir.
