Yerevan ©
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.
Appreciate the collections at Matenadaran - The Museum of Ancient Manuscripts and Gala Art Gallery. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Vernissage Market and Ardean. Change things up with these side-trips from Yerevan: Khor Virap (in Lusarat), Garni Temple (in Garni) and The Monastery of Geghard (in Geghard). Dedicate the 4th (Tue) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. And it doesn't end there: tour the pleasant surroundings at Hayravank Monastery, get a taste of the local shopping with Northern Avenue Pedestrian Street, examine the collection at History Museum of Armenia, and gain a rich perspective with a tour of cultural highlights.
