Erebuni-Yerevan

duration 04 October-11 October 2018

It’s hard to believe but it’s true: soon I'll be 2800 years old. To celebrate this occasion, I cordially invite you to be my guest. 

Even those who do not know me, are also invited.

Who am I? Founded in 782 BC., I am a significant part of the rich history, the culture and the traditions, the old and the new streets and the buildings of the country.

As a “mother city” of all Armenians, I am happy to host so many visitors every day and to feel love and joy.

This will be a colorful trip, full of impressions and explorations.

I hope to see you very soon!
