  • Round fortress in the city of Gyumri ... Powerful construction of Russian military architecture ... The fortress was built to protect the borders of the Russian Empire from the Turkish Ottoman Empire..... The fortress is in excellent condition, now it also serves for large-scale concert events. It is possible to get from the center of Gyumri by taxi ... 500-600 drams. 100 rubles Russian rubles..... The history of the fortress is rich in fame, the Russian and Armenian army. it is important to know that Emperor Nicholas I himself was present at the opening of the fortress.

  • This circular fortress has been restored and transformed into a concert hall. A small photo museum shows its previous state. Free visit.

  • An old historical fort that is now used as an event location. I luckily stumbled upon such an event, a karate competition. It was fun to watch. You can have a great view from the outside and look to the border and the mountains. A very fun place to visit.
