Armenia, officially the Republic of Armenia, is a landlocked mountainous country in Eurasia between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea, located in the Southern Caucasus. It shares borders with Turkey to the west, Georgia to the north, Azerbaijan to the east, and Iran and the Nakhichevan enclave of Azerbaijan to the south. A former republic of the Soviet Union, Armenia is a unitary, multi-party, democratic nation-state and one of the oldest and most historic civilizations in the world with a rich cultural heritage, as well as the first nation to adopt Christianity as its official religion. Although Armenia is constitutionally a secular state, the Christian faith plays a major role in both its history and the identification of the Armenian people.
Located in the southern Caucasus, it was the smallest of the former Soviet republics. It is bounded by Georgia on the north, by Azerbaijan on the east, on the south and west by Turkey and Iran. It is a land of rugged mountains and extinct volcanoes.
