Yerevan is one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world, dating back to the 8th century and thought to have been founded shortly before Rome.
The city really came to prominence however during the Caucasian country’s years as part of the Soviet Union, and many of the buildings and structures from this period have been rendered in the volcanic tuff stone that sees them glow an appealing pink colour at sunset.
Among the most prominent of Yerevan’s monuments is the 22m-high Mother Armenia, looking down on the city from Victory Park.
The capital is the most cosmopolitan part of Armenia, a great city for families to explore, and of course a perfect base from which to take day trips to other key locations including Lake Sevan.
On clear days you can see all the way across the Ararat Plain to the silhouette of Mt. Ararat (Armenia’s most sacred mountain and reputed to be the resting place of Noah’s Ark, but actually just over the border in Turkey).
To discover Armenia’s spirituality, visit some of its many monasteries. For an insight into its history and culture, nowhere beats the capital.
