    There were other statues at this place that I enjoyed much more. The fat cat which is close by this statue and is, I believe, by the same artist was much more attractive. Ah, well, she is very famous ...  more »

    Strange sculpture, the impression of seeing-double. Photographing tourists-mean touches. We're not photographed. Lies and smokes, and looks at those who it looks

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.
