What awaits you
Paints of pre-revolutionary and Soviet Yerevan We will meet in the area of Republic Square to plunge into the atmosphere of the narrow streets of the turn of the 19th - 20th centuries. You will examine the preserved facades of pre-revolutionary Yerevan, find out what the city life was like centuries ago, look into the old Yerevan courtyards, and also figure out what "shushaband" is and how to properly hang the laundry. Next, you will see Soviet Yerevan with its combination of neoclassicism and national architectural style. You will hear the amazing history of the “city of one architect” and understand why Yerevan is called “pink” - as well as apricot or peach
Yerevan stories During the walk, you will hear dozens of real and living Yerevan stories, from which the special flavor of the Armenian capital is gathered. For example, we will tell you how many guests are at a real Yerevan wedding, what scam the Armenians did to get the metro, and what is "dalan" and "jazve". And let's also talk about who Karabala is, what kind of flying saucer is on the Yerevan mountain and why the Armenians ask to make “coffee with love”
Local tips, turnouts and passwords We will guide you to the postcard locations of Yerevan: Republic Square, Opera House, Northern Avenue and Cascade. But the main thing is that we will show you the secret corners of the city that you cannot find yourself. You will receive logins and passwords of the best restaurants, cafes and bars, find out what dishes to try and what museums to visit. By the end of the walk, we will help you to become "our own" in Yerevan and to feel the mood of our city!
Who is the walk for?
- Travelers who do not want to be limited to the tourist face of Yerevan and want to see its brightest, lively and non-touristy facets.
- Children from 5 years old, kids will be tiresome and uninteresting.
