Caucasus Introduction

Armenia is a small and mountainous nation with its own unique language, alphabet and culture. It was the first country in the world to adopt Christianity in 301 and there are hundreds of very ancient churches throughout the country.

From Ancient times, Azerbaijan was known as "the land of the sacred fire", due to natural oil and gas deposits erupting from the earth, and as a centre of the Zoroastrian religion it attracted fire worshippers from all over the world.

Georgia is a land of exceptional beauty and diversity, an ancient Christian country, bounded to the west by the Black Sea and to the north by the high Caucasus Mountains.
