Armenia - Geography
By Ekaterina Zhdanova-Redman
  

1     Armenia is a country in west-central Asia. It's not a big country, but it has many interesting places. Armenia has beautiful mountains, forests, and cities. There are also a lot of very old things in Armenia. In fact, Armenia's capital city, Yerevan, is one of the oldest cities in the world.
 
2     There are several countries surrounding Armenia. To the north is Georgia. To the east is Azerbaijan. To the south is Iran, and to the west is Turkey. This part of the world has a long history. Armenians first came here around eight thousands years ago. They created a country with a government. Armenia's government then created a central city. This city is Yerevan. It was created almost 3,000 years ago.
 
3     Among the many monuments and important buildings in Yerevan is a tall pillar with a point high in the air. It was built to remember something terrible. About 80 years ago, a country called the Ottoman Empire ruled Armenia. During a war with Russia, the Ottomans had many Armenians killed. No one knows for sure, but the Ottomans killed at least a million Armenians.
