Try T’tu Lavash

This beloved Armenian snack can be found on the streets with street vendors cutting bite-sized strips for people to sample. It’s made primarily from Armenian apricot which is their national fruit. This delicacy can be eaten on its own or even wrapped in walnuts or cashews for a healthier alternative.

Check out the Unique Mirzoyan Library

This isn’t your ordinary library. It was the workspace of photographer Karen Mirzyoyan. He initially transformed this place by turning it into a personal museum that featured 100 fine photography books. It became such a hit that he opened it to the public and started hosting local photographers. It was a hub for people to share their artworks and an oasis for the artists.

Sample the Fruit Flavored Wines

In Armenia, one of the oldest countries to produce wine, fruit wine is a staple. Mt. Ararat is where most high-quality grapes are produced and it creates flavorful tastes such as pomegranate, apricot, and more. Fruit wine has less alcohol percentage and is usually paired even during lunchtime!
