Armenia is a country landlocked between Turkey, Georgia and Azerbaijan. It’s also a former Soviet union country with incredible history and natural beauty.

You won’t believe how much there is to see here… Waterfalls, forests and historical monuments.

We’ve rounded up the 7 prettiest places so you can capture a perfect Armenia Instagram to share from your trip.

1. Khndzoresk Swinging Bridge

One of the most beautiful places in Armenia is the swinging bridge above the gorge of Old Khndzoresk. You will look down at ancient caves and green forests as you walk across it.

Scared of heights? Just be aware that it shakes with every footstep.

2. Trchkan waterfall

Trchkan waterfall is sometimes called the “Armenian Niagara” and is the highest waterfall in the country.

It’s a refreshing place to cool down in during the summer. It’s also incredible in the winter months, when the entire waterfall freezes over.

This 9th-century church is straight out of a fairytale.

Explore the stone fortress walls and ancient paintings by European masters. It’s located on a hill, so you can also admire the views of the countryside.

6. Yerevan Cascade view

The Cascade Monument is one of the most famous sights in Yerevan.

From the top of the staircase, you can see the mountains in the background. Our tip? Get a taxi to the top of the stairs and walk down them, rather than up. It’s way easier.
