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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Garni Temple and Khor Virap. Get some cultural insight at The Monastery of Geghard and History Museum of Armenia. Explore Yerevan's surroundings by going to Noravank Monastery (in Areni), The Churches of Echmiatsin and the Archaeological Site of Zvartnots (in Vagharshapat) and Vardenyats Pass (Selim Pass) (in Geghhovit).
