  • Be sure to visit the Museum with a guide. Otherwise, do not experience the magnificence of the Museum and the importance of the erebuni fortress in world history! From the height of the walls offer a beautiful view.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Perhaps the most interesting attraction in Yerevan. Pretty interesting ruins of the old settlement, which is even older than Rome!
  • Yerevan day is celebrated sometime mid-October every year. They have some nice events in this Museum. Go, check out!
  • fantastic view and interesting historical overview
