Balkans: do you see Armenians as culturally similar to yourselves?

Balkans: do you see Armenians as culturally similar to yourselves?

Mamasitan

Never met an Armenian, their church is apostolic, not orthodox, their language is IndoEuropean but extremely different than ours. I guess we have some similarities because Ottomans, but that's about it.

>their church is apostolic, not orthodox What's the difference? Look pretty similar.


Mamasitan

Honestly the main thing i found when i searched is that Armenian church rejected fourth ecumenical council, and few other minor differences.


MehmetFromAlmanistan

we both have zurna and dolma


TittyBoy6

Should of put an option for โ€œno idea what they are likeโ€

Anatolian: yes Balkan: not at all


Narwhalsareawasome

Forgive me, but I couldn't understand what you ask exactly, are you asking only for answerers country or balkan as general? If second I don't think other than Christianity (and that is its different sects) there isn't really much connection I think if first yes, especially for eastern anatolia you can see similarities between armenians and turks.


Aggressive-Sun3135

10 milion crypto armenians in Anatolya. Or how I say Eastern Anatolya is Western Armenia.


Vatrokion

I really donโ€™t see anything in common with Armenians


CoolSwa

I donโ€™t think anyone in former Yugoslavia have a clue on how it looks like in Armenia


Pepre

There is definitely a lot of overlaps between Balkan and Caucasus.

BamBumKiofte23

No ma'am. All's good.

I don't know, I have never met or interacted with an Armenian.

Bulgaria used to have a sizable Armenian population back in the day. I am not sure about now, its certainly less then it used to be. Relations are relatively good however, and Armenia even gave us a free monument to Vasil Levski this year. We didnt even attempt to help them with their conflict with Azerbaijan however so I wouldnt say our nations are close.

Third option


fatadelatara

In a way yes.


Kalypso_95

OP: Do you see deliciouscabbage as similar to yourself? ๐Ÿค”


mygodistengri

Depends on which Armenians. Diaspora Armenians extremely similar. People who live in Armenia are Russified.


Velikikuronja

or turkified?


mygodistengri

No. I'm taking about communism in Armenia


Shaolinpower2

We can't Turkify someone if we have zero relationship. He was talking about 'Armenia'


TheBr33ze

Why the quotation marks?


Shaolinpower2

Because he was talking about a certain place that we have zero relationship for more than a century.


VENEPS88

yea and no


pdonchev

I can only speak from my experience with Armenians living in Bulgaria (there are many). My childhood doctor (and family friend) was Armenian and I often went to play at their place with her son. They seem very close, but this is of course not a real experience with Armenia. I know Caucasus is more extreme general.


Aggressive-Sun3135

The armenian People are older than all the Balkans. More, precisely, I would say that some of you come from some of us.


GRIG2410

Holy shit the r/2balkan4you meme is becoming real

>The armenian People are older than all the Balkans. I wonder why did you write "people" with a capital letter.


Aggressive-Sun3135

Sorry, it was autocorrect.


advanzzz
