Without exaggeration and the share of cunning, May is the best month of the year to visit Armenia. The sun is not as burning as in summer, but the winds from the Armenian mountains are no longer met either. Since May is not a beach season, it is possible to spend a few days in a hospitable land – Armenia, enjoying its mild sun, its nature and exploring historical sights.
