what makes Armenia so safe? Freedom and Equality
In Armenia, people are equal, no matter what their sex or belief is! While Christianity is considered to be a national religion in Armenia, on both legislative and societal levels, people are free to practice other religions throughout the country. Other than numerous churches, you’ll be able to find a mosque, a synagogue, and even the world’s largest Yazidi temple in Armenia. You’ll have no need to worry about the safety of practicing your religious beliefs while in the country. Whether you’re a man or a woman, the same ideas of equality apply to anyone. In Armenia, you have the right to dress that fits you with no fear for your safety or comfort. The environment in Armenia is so tolerant and accepting that you’ll find yourself wishing to stay a little longer.
Low Crime Level
Armenia is considered to be one of the safest countries in the world for solo travelers as well as for families. Low crime levels and the hospitality of the locals allow guests to enjoy their time here without any fear for their safety.
The streets are always full of families, couples and tourists no matter what the time is. If you wish to go for a walk during late hours and find yourself hesitating, just don’t – the nightlife in Yerevan is really active and entertaining.
Most of the Armenians and foreign guests prefer to go out once the sun is down, especially during the summer months.
Thus, cafés and parks are filled with people wishing to try out the delicious Armenian cuisine or simply have a nice talk with their friends over a cup of coffee or just walk by enjoying a nice Weather and beautiful city.
Let us remind you that Armenia is listed among the safest countries for Americans to travel to by the U.S. state department system. The system is divided into 4 levels, out of which the 4th stands for “do not travel.”
Armenia is labeled as a level 1 country, which stands for “exercise normal precautions,” while the neighboring countries received only level 2 or 3.
