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.
Explore hidden gems such as Amberd Fortress and Golden Grape Armas Estate. Your inner history buff will appreciate Echmiadzin Monastery and Zoravor S. Astvatsatsin Church. Change things up with these side-trips from Yerevan: Armenia Wine (in Sasunik), Hovhannavank Monastery (in Ohanavan) and The Churches of Echmiatsin and the Archaeological Site of Zvartnots (in Vagharshapat). There's still lots to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Saint Gayane Church, admire the landmark architecture of Saint Hripsime Church, see the interesting displays at Megerian Carpet Museum, and get a taste of the local shopping with Eduard Isabekyan Gallery Yerevan.
