What awaits you
Jack of all trades Armenia is a country of stones, and local sculptors breathe life into them, like Pygmalion once did in the beautiful Galatea. And there will be many such wonderful monuments on the way. The walk will start near complex Cascade, from the upper platform of which an excellent view of the city opens. Here is located Cafesjian Art Center; he is surrounded by many objects of modern art - I will tell you about the features of each sculpture. We will visit "Vernissage" - a fair of craftsmen, which amazes with its diversity. You can purchase handmade items, find antiques or simply admire the creations of the masters. We will walk along the front door Abovyan street, where mansions of the 19th century have been preserved, and you will hear about the amazing properties of tuff - the stone with which many buildings in Yerevan are faced
Curious details and entertaining stories On my tour, you will see the rich dowry of the capital and learn to notice details. I will tell you why the heart of a writer from America is buried in our country and who the ashugs were in Armenia.
