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.
Visiting Khosrov Forest State Reserve and Azat Reservoir will get you outdoors. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Yerevan: Khor Virap (in Lusarat), The Monastery of Geghard (in Geghard) and Garni Temple (in Garni). There's much more to do: savor the flavors at Food & Drink, examine the collection at Matenadaran - The Museum of Ancient Manuscripts, admire the natural beauty at Armenian Genocide Museum, and explore the world behind art at Cafesjian Center for the Arts.

Dubai, United Arab Emirates to Yerevan is an approximately 7-hour flight. You can also drive. When traveling from Dubai in August, plan for little chillier days and much colder nights in Yerevan: temperatures range from 41°C by day to 23°C at night.
