WHEN TO GO

The weather conditions can be extremely varied (even within the course of a day!). The Greater Caucasus Range moderates local climate by serving as a barrier against cold air from the north and the relatively small territory covers different climatic zones, which are determined by distance from the Black Sea and by altitude. The climatic zones range from humid subtropical to snow and glaciers.

Armenia's food customs state that the lunch and before-bed suppers are to be light and easy on the stomach. Foods of Armenia are also dependent on seasonal traditions, warmer and richer foods are prepared in winter while cooler, lighter varieties are prepared in summer. The food habits of Armenia are also dictated by the geographical boundaries of the land. Armenian Cuisine is very intimately related to east European, Mediterranean, and Middle Eastern variety.
