    I have been to Armenia for my winter holidays! Discover this country for the first time. Amazing people. I have heard about the Armenian hospitality, cuisine. Really interesting. My friends advised me to visit Geological museum. It was so nice to see such astonishing exhibits, to know about minerals of Armenia, geological monuments, and of course, the elephant sceleton. Thanks a lot.

    Прекрасный музей! Интересен и геологией и палеонтологией. Особенно поразило то, что большая часть экспонатов найдены в Армении. И аудио- гиды приложения очень помогли☺️
