    Small church of the 13th century, dominated and protected from the nearby new Church of Saint Anne, is among the oldest of the city together with that of St. Zoravor Astvatsatsin. Nice, bright and wide square, where the two churches paired and placed in an oblique direction creating a theatrical original. To see!

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.
