In RussiaIf you begin from Moscow or St. Petersburg, visit one of the Dom Knigi map departments. They are all in Cyrillic, but they are really decent enough to use, and cheaper than in Armenia. Also visit Atlas on Kuznetsky Most and Knigi at 20 Kuznetsky Most, both of which have tourist maps that should include the Caucasus.
In the USA, Canada Brentano’s, Border Books and the larger Walton Books have map sections that include the CIS, but you will have to back order maps of Armenia. Bartholomew, Freytag and Berndt both have CIS folding maps, which can be more frustrating than illuminating, since Armenia is stuck in one little corner of the whole plan.
