The wonders of Armenia

illustrated encyclopaedia/ hardcover, laminated, 104 pages, 21 cm x 29 cm, 750 gm, price – 10000 dram.

Foreigners called our country ‘a museum in an open air.” This encyclopedia is a specific guide in four “saloons’ of that museum: “Ancient Period,” “Medieval Period, Christianity,” “Nature and Lifestyle,” and “Newest Period.” More than 80 “wonders” included here are dear to Armenian reader. Maybe, this is the reason that the publishing house has chosen a little pretentious word “wonders” as a title for the book. However, we are proud of those ‘wonders,” most part of them occupied their deserved place in the treasury of world culture. You can find values forming the inseparable part of the History of the Armenian People in the encyclopedia. They are situated in the territory of the Historical Armenia (Akhtamar Saint Cross Cathedral, The Brook of Shamiram, Ani Cathedral, etc).

This book is published in English, Armenian, French and Russian languages.
