Cultural Relations and Greek Community
Due to the Greece's long-standing cultural influence (up until the 5th century A.D., the Armenians were using the Greek alphabet), Armenian interest in Greek culture is strong. Today, the Greek community of Armenia numbers a few thousand people. The dwindling number of Greeks in Armenia of recent years is mainly due to mass migration to Greece and former Soviet Republics.
The Greek language is being taught as a foreign language at the State University of Yerevan, at the "Brussov" Linguistic University and the Greek-Armenian College of Tourism.
