  • This is the ancient urartian fortress city of Erebuni (Yerevan). The archaeological site is definitely extraordinary to antiquity but today lies abandoned. I visited it, but apart from the views of the city and the view of Ararat particularly struck me. However, the visible remains are mostly rebuilt. Interest only the small adjacent Museum.

  • Little outside Yerevan. Preferable mode is transport would be taxi. Amd 1000 entrance.
  • A piece of History that makes you travel back in time with your imagination
  • 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.
