To really understand the Armenia lifestyle get out and tour the landscapes and communities surrounding Agveran. You'll find Byurakan, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the northeast, and Sevan 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the west.
Around 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the south of Agveran is Yerevan, a regional center which is home to Yerevan Opera House, Hanrapetakan Stadium and Matenadaran. Yerevan has much to offer visitors happy to delve a little deeper. Erebuni Fortress, Waterworld and National Assembly of Armenia are a couple of other sights you won't want to miss.
Every place has a fascinating history and Armenia is no exception. The fortresses here provide a great snapshot to the past.
Armenia offers visitors plenty of relaxing activities, such as picnicking and cycling.
Make sure you take your tastebuds for a tour of Armenia's restaurants and cafés. You will see that eggpalnt and burghul (cracked wheat) are often-used elements in typical local meals. There are lots of popular food options in this area. Taste ghapama (pumpkin stew) or khash (broth). Alani (pitted, dried peaches) is a commonly enjoyed last course. Erebuni is a much-loved beer here. So find a bar, kick back and see what you think. Put some money on the bar for some Artsakh (mulberry vodka). This is a popular spirit in the region. To wrap up your dining experience, order kvas (fermented bread drink). It is a popular non-alcoholic beverage in this region.
Even the best vacation can't last forever, so when it's time go home, head to the nearest major airport in Yerevan, 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the south.
