The Armenian cuisine is similar to the cuisines of other countries of the Caucasus. Nevertheless, it is also influenced by Turkey and Russia. Dairy products form a very important part of Armenian food, especially cheese, goat milk, sheep milk and cow milk. Typical Armenian dishes include dolma (stuffed vine leaves), tan (mixture of yogurt and water, salted), ishli qufta (stuffed oblong pate). Baklava is also eaten in Armenia, but is attributed to the influence of other cuisines.
The Armenian language is neither a South Caucasian nor a Turkish language, but is a separate branch of the Indo-European language family. It has its own alphabet that was developed in the 4th century.
In Armenia, Russian is also increasingly spoken. In the capital, Yerevan, you can talk to young people in English.
In 301 AD, Armenia became the first European state to adopt Christianity as state religion. Armenia founded a church - the Armenian Apostolic Church - which still exists independently from the Catholic and Eastern Orthodox Churches. Today, about 92% of Armenians are followers of this church and Christianity has remained an important part of the culture.
