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.

There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Matenadaran - The Museum of Ancient Manuscripts, don't miss a visit to Republic Square, explore the galleries of Armenian Genocide Museum, and explore the ancient world of Khor Virap.
