The hotel during day time in the republican square. Politically, Armenia is still rather isolated: its borders with Azerbaijan and Turkey are closed, only the border with Georgia (on the other side of the Lesser Caucasus mountains) and a small border area with Iran is open, the latter of importance to both countries: Iran using it to get to products that cannot otherwise come into the country due to international sanctions, Armenia is importing Oil and Gas and other importance resources.
