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.
Take a break from the city and head to Caucasus Mountains and Mount Aragats. For shopping fun, head to Vernissage Market or Arev Art Gallery. Change things up with these side-trips from Yerevan: Khor Virap (in Lusarat), Garni (Charent's Arch & Garni Temple) and The Monastery of Geghard (in Geghard). And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at Matenadaran - The Museum of Ancient Manuscripts, learn about winemaking at Armenia Wine Company, and take in nature's colorful creations at Armenian Genocide Museum.
