Armenia - moving around the country
The aviation industry in Armenia is quite developed. There are only eleven large airports in the Republic, ten of which have asphalted runways. It should be noted that since the times of the Soviet Union, there were small airstrip in the territory of almost every remote settlement. Then again, only a few have survived to this day. At large international airports, flights from the countries of the former CIS region are operated several times a day. Statistics show that the number of tourists arriving in the country by air transportation increases yearly. That is why all airports are gradually undergoing reconstruction and opening new terminals in order to increase their throughput.
Overview of festivals and celebrations in Armenia
Armenia was the first country in the world that adopted Christianity as the main religion. According to the calendar of the Armenian Apostolic Church, Christmas is celebrated on January 5-6. Christmas is a family holiday. On this day, a large family gathers at a festive table. Locals invite relatives and friends. On the morning of January 6, a consecration ceremony takes place in the church. After the service, the Armenians bring some consecrated water home. Easter in Armenia is one of the key religious holidays. Locals call it Surb Zatik, which means "holy liberation." This holiday symbolizes liberation from evil and suffering. In the Holy Week, children tell their most hidden secrets, and adults confess their sins. On Sunday, it is common to share eggs. People exchange three-fold kisses while greeting each other.
