Armenia - About the Country

Armenia is a part of the former Soviet Union, today called Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). The Capital of Armenia is Yerevan, you know the Radio Yerevan jokes....

Armenia has only one caving club, called Armenian Speleological Society. The president is Smbad Davtian.

Most sources on the country are in Russian or Armenian, and the number of online resources is rather small. As a result there is not much info available. Also there is not much tourism, there is only one developed show cave in Armenia, with lighted paths and regular tours. Mozrovi was developed during the last years. Still there are many subterranean sights, which may be visited by the experienced traveller.

The languages spoken in Armenia are Armenian and Russian, using the Armenian and Cyrillic alphabet. This means, that all transcripitons into the Latin alphabet are just an approach, and there may be several different ways to write the names.
