By Region

Armenia is divided into ten regions or marzes. Each marz has a unique culture, formed by its long history and specific geography. Armenia’s capital, Yerevan, celebrates the 2800th anniversary of its founding in 2018, and the marzes have equally ancient origins and histories to discover. The southern marzes include Ararat, Vayots Dzor, Syunik, and Gegharkunik, and the northern marzes include Armavir, Aragatsotn, Shirak, Lori, Tavush, and Kotayk. My Armenia currently supports experiences located in Lori, Shirak, Syunik, Tavush, and Vayots Dzor marz.
