----- Yerevan -----
Yerevan is the capital of Armenia with population of 1 million people. Armenia. Situated along the
route of the Great Silk Road, it is a landlocked country of rugged mountains and extinct volcanoes,
located in the southern Caucasus, between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea. Armenia has a dry
tropical climate. Mostly clear sunny days are dominant in a year. Summers are hot here, the
temperature fluctuates between +22C to +36C. Winters are mainly cold, the average temperature
is between -15C to -1C.
Culturally, historically and politically, Armenia is considered to be a part of Europe. However, due
to its location in the southern Caucasus, on the conventional boundary between Europe and Asia,
we can say that it’s an intercontinental country. Endowed with rich cultural heritage, Armenia is
considered to be the first country to officially adopt Christianity in the IV century (301).
