Armenia doesn’t usually top most people’s travel bucket lists.

But that might change after the Kardashians’ recent visit to the country.

According to Eonline, Kim, along with husband Kanye West, daughter North West, sister Khloe, and two cousins, spent a few days touring Armenia last week.

They left on Monday to fly to Israel.

Why Armenia?

It’s the ancestral homeland of the Kardashians’ late father, Robert Kardashian, the New York Times reports.

Both Kim and Khloe documented their travels through the country on their Instagram accounts.

Between the two of them, the sisters have a whopping 50 million followers — which can only mean good things for Armenia’s tourism industry.

The Kardashians’ arrival in Armenia was met with overwhelming excitement on both ends. Kim expressed her gratitude for being able to visit the country, and said she was excited to “explore our country and have some yummy food!”

Khloe posted this photo of herself and Kim with one of their cousins visiting the Mother Armenia Statue in Yerevan. According to Khloe, the statue symbolises “peace through strength” and commemorates the Armenian women who helped their husbands “in clashes with Turkish troops and Kurdish irregulars.”

Here, the sisters and two cousins meet with Armenia’s prime minister, Hovik Abrahamyan, to talk about the centennial commemoration of the mass killings of Armenians by Ottoman Turks, which will take place on April 24th. Kim described the meeting as “an honour.”


Kim and Khloe payed their respects at the Armenian Genocide Museum and Institute at the Tsitsernakaberd Memorial Complex.

The family’s visit ended with Kayne’s surprise — and free — concert in Yerevan, where Kayne jumped into Swan Lake to be closer to fans, according to Kim. She describes the night as exciting and crazy.
