Some armenian customs and traditions

Armenian holidays consist of Christian and Pagan culture, which are both deeply rooted in Armenian customs and traditions.

Armenians are open-hearted and keep communication simple.

A bit hot-tempered but open-hearted and good-natured, Armenians are famous for their kindness and hospitality, respect for adults, strong family values and gentle attitude to children.

In Armenia, visitors might notice locals kissing on the cheek when they meet, which is the most common greeting among friends and family.
