The things you must know about Yerevan

yerevan-attractionsAs you might spot, we have many tours to Armenia, but today we are going to talk more about its capital- city of Yerevan.

Yerevan is old

Yerevan is one of the oldest capitals in the world, basically, it’s even 29 years older than the famous Rome, this year, the capital of Armenia is turning 2798 years!! The city suffered from many changes and dominations, but it always remained the one and only Yerevan

It got colours

yerevan_sightseeing_tour_1024x685_448Despite its big and respectful age, Yerevan combines beautifully the old and the new. But it’s not this that counts; every new and old building has one thing in common: it’s all made of naturally coloured volcanic rock, all of which are pink! So Yerevan is truly called a “pink city”!

Noah saw it

It is believed that Noah’s ark came to rest on the Mount Ararat when he saw the city (which became afterwards the capital) and exclaimed “It’s seen, it’s appeared!” according to the legend, these words where “erevats” which became the name of the city- Yerevan.

yerevan-plus-araratThe symbol of the country can be seen everywhere

The Mount Ararat, despite the fact that at the moment it is not even a part of Armenia anymore, still remains the main symbol of the country; moreover, it can be seen from the capital itself! This legend is very popular and explains the most clearly the name and the religion attribution of the country.

Has one of the biggest Churches in the Caucasus

Armenia is the first country to adopt on a national level the Christianity, and every Armenian is extremely 051-yerevantravel-800x600proud of this fact. Moreover, everyone know that it wouldn’t be possible if not the Saint Gregory the Illuminator, in the honour of the 1700 anniversary of the proclamation of Christianity as a state religion, the Cathedral of Saint Gregory the Illuminator was consecrated in 2001!

The richest collection of medieval manuscripts

In Yerevan you can find the Mesrop Mashtots Institute of Ancient Manuscripts, which is more commonly known as Matenaradan, Matendaran means in Armenian “a repository of manuscripts” and it has books and writing that date back 42-53128239-660x420to the fifth century A.D. Unfortunately, a big part of the collection was destroyed in the middle ages, but it is worth couple hours, everything here breaths history.

Brandy tours

Last but not the least important, another symbol of the country in general and Yerevan in particular, is Brandy, as good as it deserves the name to be called Cognac (a name only French and Armenian brandy can be called). Once being in Yerevan, a Cognac tasting session is essential for understanding the beverage culture of it (just don’t exaggerate!).

Be always welcome to Yerevan with our tours!
