Yerevan
Old and new sit side by side in Yerevan, showing the country's capital to be a city on the move, but also proud of its history and traditions.
Step out of the city life by going to Master Levon's Divine Underground and Swan Lake. Matenadaran - The Museum of Ancient Manuscripts and History Museum of Armenia will appeal to museum buffs. Take a break from Yerevan with a short trip to Yeghvard Church in Yeghvard, about 36 minutes away. Dedicate the 9th (Tue) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. On the 24th (Wed), give your taste buds a day to remember with a local gastronomic tour. There's still lots to do: explore the galleries of Armenian Genocide Museum, brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Noy Yerevan Brandy Factory, see the interesting displays at Komitas Museum-Institute, and don't miss a visit to Republic Square.
