More than a third of the Armenian population lives in Yerevan. The city is the cultural, economic and political center of the country. If we consider 782 BC (when the Erebuni fortress was founded) as the date of the foundation of Yerevan, it turns out that the Armenian capital is older than Rome. There are no magnificent palaces and monumental Baroque facades, but there is a unique charm of streets, parks and small squares.
Yerevan could not recover for a long time after the devastating events of the 1990s. For many years of decline and lack of funding, many buildings and entire districts require renovation. However, today it is clear that the city is being revived, turning into a beautiful and attractive place for tourists, where there are many worthy attractions.
