Yerevan is the capital of Armenia and the largest city in the country. The magnificent architecture of the Soviet era along with the rich history of the city made it one of the most attractive places for tourists in the Caucasus. Yerevan's love of art, literature, religion quite captivates everyone who comes here. Many travelers will begin their acquaintance with Armenia right here, and they will certainly not regret anything!

Zvartnots International Airport, EVN

This is not only the main airport in Yerevan, but also the busiest in the country. During the year, it serves about 2.5 million passengers. Against the backdrop of large international hubs such as Singapore or New York, this number seems quite insignificant. But for a small and not yet sufficiently popular Armenia, the flow of tourists is impressive.

 

The airport consists of three terminals, the oldest of which is no longer working. Zvartnots is in a constant process of modernization and construction. The airport is very convenient, but there is nothing to be impressed with.

How to get from the airport to the city center?

There is official Airport Taxi of the Zvartnots airport. You can find a car in the parking lot when leaving the terminal. The fare to the center will be only $ 3–7, depending on the distance.

Also, the center can be reached by bus number 201. Drive 40 minutes and the price will be around 50 cents. But it must be taken into account that the bus is part of the city transport system, therefore it runs only from 7:30 to 18:00.

By private minibuses you can get to the nearest metro station for the same 50 cents. The trip takes only 15 minutes. A trip on the subway will cost a modest 20 cents. The Yerevan metro consists of only 10 stations, so it’s simply impossible to get lost here.

Free city tour

Free walking tours are one of the best ways to get to know the city. Local volunteers are ready to show their hometown for free, sending tourists to iconic places. And most importantly, you will not find many of the guides' stories in any guidebook.

 

Tours are available on request, so you need to arrange a walk in advance. Also remember that the concept of a free walking tour involves any reward at the end that you want to provide — whether it is money or a cup of coffee.

Republic Square

Republic Square is located in the city center. It is good to walk in the evenings, watching the ordinary everyday life of Yerevan residents. To complete the construction of this square, it took as much as 50 years, although most were completed in the middle of the last century.

 

There are also the History Museum and the National Gallery. Their visit will help to better understand Armenia as a whole and get acquainted with its rich history.

Cascade

The monumental architectural complex “Cascade” is located in the very center of Yerevan. At its core, it is a massive staircase with many terraces decorated with statues and flowers. Go all the way to the very top to get to the observation platform, which offers a beautiful view of the mountains of Ararat. And on the way back, take a look at the Gafeschyan Arts Center.

Cond District

Cond is the oldest district of Yerevan on the western outskirts of the city. Since there is no classical old center in the capital of Armenia, the Cond took over its role. The area is located on a hill where narrow stairs lead. It consists of dilapidated and worn-out houses, overgrown gardens and ancient shacks.

 

This is a poor area, so it is not so well preserved. Romantic cobblestone streets can not be found here. But here the old spirit of Yerevan has been preserved, which cannot be found in any other corner of the city. In addition, it is likely that soon nothing will be left of it.

"Vernissage" flea market
If you want to buy unique souvenirs, go straight to the most famous flea market in Yerevan called “Vernissage”. There is everything you can imagine. Most items on the shelves are handmade. At "Vernissage" you will find jewelry, woven carpets, clothes, toys, and vintage objects. This is a very short and very rough list of interesting things on the market.

Institute of Ancient Manuscripts Matenadaran

You are hardly anywhere else in the world will find such an institution. If you are even a little interested in history, literature, art and philosophy, be sure to check out Matenadaran. In front of the museum you will see a statue of Mesrop Mashtots, whose name the institute bears — he invented the Armenian script. In Matnadaran itself, ancient texts from around the world are collected. This is a unique collection, the likes of which are nowhere else to be found.

What to eat in Yerevan

Almost everyone is familiar with Georgian food, but what do you know about Armenian cuisine? Meanwhile, food in Yerevan is dangerously good. "Dangerous" means it's absolutely impossible to stop.

 

Start exploring local food with a classic manti dish. This is a steam version of khinkali with an excellent set of seasonings for meat. Manti is served most often in a thick tomato-garlic sauce.

 

Another important dish in Yerevan is Lahmajun. Rumor has it that this recipe was brought by the Armenians who briefly emigrated to Central Asia, and then returned back. Lahmajun is a crispy pastry with beef mince, herbs and spices. Such an Armenian version of pizza.

 

Be sure to try basturma sandwiches in Yerevan. After all, they know how to cook basturma according to all the rules. Or order an omelet with this type of meat, which everyone in Yerevan eats without exception. And for sweets, eat one of dozens of types of churchkhela — nuts in jelly grape juice.
