"I hitchhiked around the whole country and I have to say that Armenia is hitchhiking paradise. No one asked me for money. I also hitchhiked a few taxis and they took me for free. I´ve never waited for a long time, usually for a few minutes. The country is very beautiful and the people are very hospitable. They invited me a few times for dinner or for a night to their house. But for sure it´s much better if you speak Russian(or any other Slavonic language, it´s similar). At this moment I hitchhiked in 26 countries and Armenia was the best. " from hitchhiker's personal experience.
