I loved visiting Yalta and the Crimean peninsula in 2008. Would love to visit there again one day. Lots of beautiful women on the beaches during summer.

They are ( Armenian Church in particular,) but I always knew somehow that Armenian Church was different from Russian and Georgian, which are both Eastern Orthodox Churches.
So I had to google it up, and yes- Armenian Church is not Eastern Orthodox, but Oriental Orthodox.

Fascinating. Thanks for this! I wasn't aware that the Coptic Church was referred to as an Oriental Church.
