Ira Losco, who is representing Malta in the Eurovision Song Contest 2016, has visited the Armenian representative, Iveta Mukuchyan, in Armenia.

After the two singers met at the Eurovision pre-party in Moscow, the two became friends and Ira decided to visit Armenia to see Iveta, and to learn more about the country; its people, culture and traditions.

I had such a great time in Moscow’s pre-party. This is where I met Iveta. I was seeing her for the first time, but as soon as we started talking, it seemed like we knew each other for many years. She is such a nice person – openhearted and kind. To be honest, I didn’t think we would get so close in such a short time. But we share a lot of personal qualities and interests, so we instantly got along. My visit to Armenia was fascinating. I loved the country, its rich culture, ethnic cuisine, the beautiful nature and of course the people, who were very kind and hospitable. I had a wonderful time-says Ira Losco.

I was so excited to see Ira in Armenia. We first met each other during the pre-party in Moscow and have been good friends ever since. She’s such an amazing person. Beautiful, talented, strong. I truly admire her and the work she’s doing as an artist. It was so much fun to chill with Ira and share with her my country’s culture and traditions- says Iveta.

During her time in Armenia, Ira visited some of the most iconic and historic places in the country. She saw the medieval monastery Geghard, which is a UNESCO world heritage site, the Greco-Roman Temple of Garni and all the major sights in the capital city, Yerevan.
