Cultural life in Armenia in 2012 has been quite eventful with theatre and film festivals, local and international exhibitions. In 2012 Yerevan was declared UNESCO World Book Capital. Not all of the cultural events, however, have been received positively in Armenia, some even stirred clamor among the society.

The cultural year was heralded by a major fire at Surb Nshan Church in Tbilisi – one of the six churches that are a matter of dispute between the Armenian Apostolic and Georgian Orthodox churches

In January, Armenian literature enthusiasts unveiled an upgraded version of their literary website – Granish – popular among reading aficionados and authors.
