Format: Paperback
An excellent book, presenting every detail in a very pleasant fashion. If you are going to visit the land of Noah, the first Christian country, i.e. Armenia, this is a must for you.

One of the good things about the book is that it also touches Karabakh. It was liberated from azeri rule about 20 years ago, saving a part of the local Christian population from ethnic cleansing. The book is just brilliant... it talks about many historical monuments and the masterpieces of Nature. At the same time it is not trying to sell you everything: it helps to set the priorities for someone who has a limited time in the country.

This is an excellent guidebook. It is helpful and informative without being boring or dry. There are plenty of richly colored pictures, ranging from shots of ancient monasteries and cross stones, to buildings, monuments, and statues erected during the Soviet period, to the faces of ordinary people. The Nagorno-Karabakh section is quite extensive, politics and ethnocentrism aside. If you are planning to visit Armenia/Karabakh, and are looking for a good guidebook, then the Stone Garden Guide is the one to get.

Format: Paperback
The first edition of The Stone Garden Guide: Armenia & Karabagh was the 2005 Independent Publisher award finalist in the category of best travel guide. Now in an updated second edition, Armenia & Karabagh remains thorough, practical, and completely up-to-date in its information concerning this predominantly Christian nation that borders Turkey, Azerbaijan, and Iran. Written by Matthew Karanian and Robert Kurkjian, two experts who have each spent a decade traveling in the region, Armenia & Karabagh is filled cover-to-cover with full-color maps, photographs, must-see sights, and solid general advice for business and pleasure travelers alike (drink bottled water instead of the local water unless it has been boiled, and also avoid using ice cubes in restaurants or using nonsterilized water to brush one's teeth). An all-inclusive, absolute "must-have" for anyone interested in experiencing the uniquely rich cultural heritage of Armenia for themselves.

Having just come back from a months stay in Armenia including a short visit to Karabagh, I am amazed at the amount of up to date and useful information contained in this book. You feel that the authors were there the day before your visit and give you all the tips and advice that can make your trip a memorable one. The color photographs as well as the glossy pages are of the highest quality, ensuring it a permanent place on any bookshelf or coffee table.

I was planning a ten day trip to Aremenia and wanted a travel guide. I shopped around and this one seemed to be the best. I was very pleased with it when it arrived and I was even more pleased as I had it in hand while I traveled in Armenia. The book seems to capture the real Armenia in all its beauty. It is now a treasured souvenir of my trip. I recommend buying this book even if you will only be there for a few days.

Purchased this book for my Armenian mother's birthday after hearing a Podcast by Rick Steves. Rick interviewed one of the authors and I was really inspired to get this book and travel! From the interview, sounds like a very approachable country. Author has also done great photography in another book, which is a must-have.
