Balkans: do you see Armenians as culturally similar to yourselves?
By - OddGuidance907
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.
Honestly the main thing i found when i searched is that Armenian church rejected fourth ecumenical council, and few other minor differences.
we both have zurna and dolma
Should of put an option for “no idea what they are like”
Balkan: not at all
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.
10 milion crypto armenians in Anatolya. Or how I say Eastern Anatolya is Western Armenia.
I really don’t see anything in common with Armenians
I don’t think anyone in former Yugoslavia have a clue on how it looks like in Armenia
There is definitely a lot of overlaps between Balkan and Caucasus.
If you answered that would be cheating XD
Hmm? Is there something you'd like to speak about?🧐🧐
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.
In a way yes.
OP: Do you see deliciouscabbage as similar to yourself? 🤔
Depends on which Armenians. Diaspora Armenians extremely similar. People who live in Armenia are Russified.
No. I'm taking about communism in Armenia
We can't Turkify someone if we have zero relationship. He was talking about 'Armenia'
Why the quotation marks?
Because he was talking about a certain place that we have zero relationship for more than a century.
yea and no
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.
The armenian People are older than all the Balkans. More, precisely, I would say that some of you come from some of us.
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.
Sorry, it was autocorrect.
Balkans are birthplace of humans we are oldest in world 💪😎 the armenian "people"🙄 come from us
Their church is eastern when compared to orthodox eastern
