  • ancient Urartunian fortres. it is not mentioned about armenians. Irevan historical city of Azerbaijan
  • Very nice view over the city. We payed the entry fee but on the top we saw that there is a unguarded street where the locals come here for free even with cars. The street starts a few hundred meters right from the museum.
  • Fortress itself wasn't super interesting and unfortunately the museum was closed.
  • Having been founded in 722 B.C., Erebuni fortress is still impressive. It is one of the most important Urartian sites. It is a great place for the lovers of ancient castles. There are various cuneiform inscriptions. You can walk at Apadana, Khaldi tower and some other cute places.
  • Perhaps the most interesting attraction in Yerevan. Pretty interesting ruins of the old settlement, which is even older than Rome!
