  • Erebuni fortress is a Museum for Armenian History for more 3000 years ago , you can see all Yerevan from Erebuni Fortress  more »
  • It was the first attraction in Armenia, which we visited. At that point we did not know that, unfortunately, there is little left so preservative monasteries. Here are all very nice and energetically stronger.

  • Examination of real structures, albeit recovered, always leaves a strong impression. And the history of the place interesting. Gorgeous view from the fortress. The fortress itself more interesting than Museum located nearby.

  • 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
