Stepanakert has been populated since the nineteenth century, the territory of the present city was originally known as the village Vararakn. The city is located on the eastern side of the Artsakh Mountain Range, on the left bank of the Karkar-Vararakn Tributary, about 850 m above sea level. The first map of the city (1926) was drawn by Alexander Tamanyan.

The capital Stepanakert is the largest city of the Republic of Artsakh with 54,500 inhabitants. Stepanakert received the status of the city in 1847. Until then, it had been an Armenian colony called Vararakn, which had more than 2,000 years of history.

The Armenian drama theatre, named after V. Papazyan (founded in 1932), played a significant role in the cultural life of the city. Under the Azerbaijani administration, all performances on the history of the Armenian people were removed from the program. Even the word "Armenian" was removed,and the theatre board was rejected from all theatre programs.

Although a large part of Stepanakert's population belonged to the Armenian Apostolic Church, during the Soviet era, there had been no church until 2007, because the Church of St. George (Surp Kevork), built in the late nineteenth century was destroyed by Joseph Stalin in the 1930s to build the Stepanakert Theater.

On the northern outskirts of the city, near the military cemetery, lies a small medieval church called Vararakn (English: "rapid spring"), located on a private land. It has not been visited for a long time. It bears the same name as the ancient Armenian village.

On May 9, 2007, the Church of St. George (Surp Hakob) opened its doors to mark the 15th anniversary of the liberation of Shushi. The church was built by Nerses Yepremian of Los Angeles.

The construction of the cathedral of Notre-Dame began on July 19, 2006, it is not yet completed.
