Yerevan is a study in cultural evolution. One of the oldest cities in the world, it is alive with artistic tradition. Art galleries, concert halls, parks and cafes buzz with activity in one of the oldest inhabited cities in the world. While visiting Yerevan, a performance by the Armenian Philharmonic Orchestra is not to be missed. Ancient manuscripts by Aristotle, Eusebius and many more scholars can be found at the The Matenadaran Institute of Ancient Manuscripts. Paintings by Aivazovsky, Armenia’s greatest painter, take pride of place at The National Gallery, which also houses a fantastic collection of Russian art.
Yerevan is a great jumping off spot to explore the Armenian countryside. Lake Sevan, the hot springs of Arzni and Jermuk, the forests of Dilijan, Aghveran, Tsaghkadzor, Bjurakan and Gugark, and the mountain caves and cliffs of the Southeast region are all within easy reach.
