Welcome to what we hope to be Asbarez’s annual guide to tourism in Armenia. As more and more Armenia’s travel to Armenia, we saw it a fitting opportunity to provide a comprehensive guide to Armenia for our readers to enjoy and utilize during their stay there.
For this issue, we invited Matthew Karanian and Robert Kurkjian, authors of The Stone Garden Guide: Armenia and Karabagh, to provide excerpts from the book, which is the most current guidebook dedicated solely to Armenia and Karabakh. This 304-page guide is lavishly illustrated with color photographs and maps and has won three national book awards.
