Take a Walking Tour in Yerevan of Old Abovian Quarter, which combines graceful hallmarks of Armenia’s 19th century Belle Époque with the towering examples of the New Yerevan, modernist buildings that are filling the center. Stroll down Mashtots Avenue; through Ring Park; or take short hike into the Hrazdan Canyon.
Yerevan is more than a capital, it is also one of the oldest cities in Armenia, with its historical and cultural museums, monuments, evidences allover the city mixed and surrounded with the modern cafes, fountains, bars and restaurants.
Yerevan had become center for Armenians allover the world. For a short stay worth visiting Erebuni Museum (historical), Matenadaran (manuscripts museum), Vernissage (outside crafts market) an entertaining folk concert, usually happening Friday nights. Still you haven’t seen Sergey Parajanov’s Museum (artist, sculptor and filmmaker), Sunday mass in St. Sargis Monastery, haven’t taken a tour in Yerevan Brandy Factory and missed Cascade Museum, Central food market (“Prospekti Shuka”), singing fountains, and so on and so forth. You would want to come back again to visit an artist’s family and have coffee and watch him curving or painting, and still more time to just sit in an outside cafes, enjoy cool and colorful fall evenings.
