    I have that same exact drive! Pushing me. Goading me. Awesome, right? We go to places few see, well off of the beaten path. No other way to travel. Yerevan looks inspired! Thanks for sharing 🙂

    Wow- when you say you like to explore off the beaten path locations- you weren’t kidding! I didn’t even know this city existed until I read your post- but it’s absolutely gorgeous! It does look like you would need more than a day, or even two, to fully explore!

      Well, I wouldn’t say Yerevan it’s off the beaten track but it is the capital of a not-too-well-known country

    Armenia looks gorgeous! I love how it seems to be a mix of different cultures. European and middle eastern. The architecture is also very impressive! Would love to see some of the churches in person!

      Definitely, Brittany. It’s like a mix of the two worlds even though the population is predominately Orthodox Christian. But yeah, visiting Armenia is an amazing experience

    Thanks for this informative post. I have never been about the Pink city in the Caucans before. The summer festival looks a lot of fun but what do they celebrate?

      That’s an interesting question. Initially, the ancient festival was associated with the goddess of water, beauty, love, and fertility, Astghik. However, nowadays the festival is more closely tied to the transfiguration of Jesus (as the main religion in Armenia today is Orthodox Christianity).

    Wow, I had no idea Armenia was so beautiful with much to see and explore! And the tradition of Vardavar reminds me of a similar one we have in India called Holi, where the water thrown at random people is coloured!

    Great shots clicked. Vardavar is similar to Holi event in India. Only difference is Holi is played with colors.

    Armenia is a country that has somewhat slipped under the radar for us – we hadn’t really considered it before. Yerevan really looks stunning though, your photos are fantastic! This gives us something else to consider for our Euro trip next year!

    Never saw referring to Yerevan as a pink city. But this makes it much more interesting. during my travels, I photograph the streets a lot and the color would be a nice addition.

    Here in Dubai, many people go to Yerevan and I too want to go there as it is a very short flight from here. I loved your detailed post on this pink city. Varadvar festival looks fun and it is similar to Holi in India where people throw a bucket of water on all people who are roaming around.

    Armenia is so beautiful and yet so underrated. It’s a small country with everything in it especially the mixture of cultures and the gorgeous landscapes. Best thing about it is it is cheap too.

    I believe that these former Soviet republics are some of the last unexplored and not over-touristy places in the world. And some of them – as you prove in your post – are truly hidden gems. I think one of my next trips will include this part of the Caucasus. Very inspiring post!
