Is Armenia in Europe? Are Armenians European? These questions very often rise to the people who have heard about our country but don’t know much about it.
So, in this article, we will clarify whether Armenia is in Europe, Asia or the Middle East?
Armenia is a member of the Council of Europe and it has friendly relations with the European Union. Armenia is included in the European Union's European Neighborhood Policy (ENP). It is difficult to discover whether Armenia is in Europe or in Asia but it has the traditions of both.
As Armenia is geographically situated in Asia, Armenians are considered to be European rather than Asian, though this question is rather undiscussed. There are both Asian and European traditions and customs in Armenia, although the Asian ones dominate.
Armenia is situated in Europe rather than in Asia but the customs of Armenians, their way of thinking is rather Asian than European. The geographical position is in Europe but the Armenians themselves are both Asian and European.
Some people think that Armenia is a part of the Middle East, and some of them think it’s situated on the continent of Europe. We are assuring you that both ideas - Europe and Asia, are true, but not the Middle East. Armenia is not in the Middle East.
