4.0
Katoghike Church is allegedly the oldest church in the city, dating back to the 13th century--judged from the carvings on the chapel walls.

  • Probably the smalles, but also the oldest surviving church in Yerevan. Since it is located not too far from the Opera House, it will be on one of your ways through the city. Stop by and take a look.  more »
  • The little church represents a miraculous witness of the ancient Armenian capital Yerevan, one of the few buildings not destroyed in the Soviet or Czarist-era. Painted and carved, is a very important religious place where the faithful come to pray and light a candle. The rites are held in the adjacent church of Saint Anne, new and spacious, which together with the Katoghike forms a photogenic architectural complex.

Where to stay in Yerevan

When it comes to accommodations in Yerevan, you'll find a number and a range befitting its status as the capital and most populous city in the country. Look in the Kentron (center) district, where by far the greatest number and best quality hotels can be found. Hotels in old Soviet blocks, grand former administrative buildings, or newly built high-rises offer standard to luxury rooms, along with a set of smaller hostels. With prices notoriously high for the region (and many visitors using Yerevan as a base from which to see the country), consider renting an apartment if staying for a longer period.
