For a cultural experience head to Gyumri Main Square, a pedestrian area surrounded by interesting buildings. You'll find two large churches on either end of the square, a water fountain in the center, and a statue of military hero Vardan Mamikunian. Due to a calamitous earthquake in 1988, one of the churches stands partly ruined and under an ongoing reconstruction process. After walking around the square and admiring the architecture, make your way to one of the nearby cafes or restaurants to people watch and grab a quick snack.

  • Who's not in Gyumri-the Armenia Vidal. Gyumri is not peredovaemyj color. After the earthquake the city rebuilt, and the city became more beautiful. People are very nice, good beer, restaurants are all tasty and cheap. Paradise-in short!

  • The Gyumri destroyed by a devastating earthquake in 1988 has not much to offer. The two main churches, monuments and cinema grouped around the main square. All in all apart from the historical importance of a tourist highlight.

  • Apostolic society become a center of tourism, in the heart of the Gyumri and Armenia Church is located to the North and South. The pattern has become the place for local residents to relax. Surrounded by excellent restaurants and cafes. And walk south to market.
