Just how great is it?

With so many things to see in Armenia, you may be wondering just which ones to narrow it down to on this trip. Hopefully, this list will help you decide. I have visited hundreds of sites across Armenia and Karabakh, and have read every resource available to me in English. But in the end, the ratings just come down to my opinion... there is no scientific way to judge. The sites are listed by rank, on a scale of 1-100. A question mark (?) means that I have not been to the site, so I am judging based on pictures and texts. A plus next to the number means that it may be worthy of bonus points to you if you are Armenian, since they have special significance for Armenians. The GPS coordinates make finding some sites infinitely easier, just by pasting them into into google maps or openstreetmaps.
