    Top Descriptions

    As the capital of , there’s a lot to expect of Yerevan, and in many ways this city delivers. The centre is spacious, well designed, replete with sculptures and interesting museums, and back-dropped by the impressive and often snow-capped 5,000m+ Mount Ararat. There are even a good array of international restaurants to be found here, as well as some excellent local cuisine. Step outside of the city centre though and the quality soon drops off, and public transportation throughout the city isn’t of particularly user friendly of a high quality. Nevertheless, there’s some good value to be had in Yerevan, and many like the very unassuming European vibe. Spend a few days and you may just find yourself spending a few more.
