Dental tourism is a comparatively recent direction in Armenia, but the sphere already has great success. First of all, medical services here are apparently at more affordable rates and secondly, it is possible to combine treatment (implantation, crowning and dental crown replacement, caries treatment, tartar removal, tooth whitening and so on) with excursion programs.
Day 1 Yerevan arrival. Tour of the capital Yerevan known as the «pink city» because of pinkish tufa stone used in the construction of the buildings. The city of Yerevan is one of the ancient cities in the world. The major sites include: Erebuni Fortress built during the ancient kingdom of Urartu, located in what is present-day Yerevan. It was one of several fortresses built along the northern Urartian border and was one of the most important political, economic and cultural centers of the vast kingdom.
The rout starts at a stony semi-desert with wormwood – Artemisia fragrans – as its primary plant. In early spring (end of February - March) Poa bulbosa transforms the uniform, grey appearance of the semi-desert with its soft green carpets. In amongst the stones, pale pink flowers of Merendera trigyna, smelling of honey, appears; it is a favourite with the Armenians.
