Old and new sit side by side in Yerevan, showing the country's capital to be a city on the move, but also proud of its history and traditions.
Venture out of the city with trips to Khor Virap (in Lusarat), Garni (Amenaprkich Church & Garni Temple) and The Monastery of Geghard (in Geghard). And it doesn't end there: don't miss a visit to Republic Square, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Saint Hripsime Church, take in nature's colorful creations at Armenian Genocide Museum, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Vernissage Market.
