Step back in time with a visit to Yerevan Children's Railway. Originating in the USSR, children's railways were a unique phenomenon, functioning as educational institutions that allowed young students to learn various railroad professions. Today, visitors can take a ride on the narrow gauge railroad from 1937, looping through the Hrazdan gorge and running for about 600 m (1,968 ft). Although slightly run-down, the track offers a unique glimpse into life in Soviet-era Armenia.

  • On the children's railway we arrived on a sunny autumn day. A very beautiful place, perfect for children's photo shoots. It is a pity that the locomotive did not work, but in general the experience of the visit is very positive. It's a very beautiful place.

  • We were snare and hello. The trip to the children's railway was the main in the list of visits. A comrade on the chair told us the train would go, if it was 10 people. Tk me with a 2 year old child and a stroller, then decided to wait, there are stairs and run there and there is not an option. Well super.Mercy It's a pity that such a story, such an idea and in the end such a start-up.
