Step back in time with a visit to Yerevan Children's Railway. Originating in the USSR, children's railways were a unique phenomenon, functioning as educational institutions that allowed young students to learn various railroad professions. Today, visitors can take a ride on the narrow gauge railroad from 1937, looping through the Hrazdan gorge and running for about 600 m (1,968 ft). Although slightly run-down, the track offers a unique glimpse into life in Soviet-era Armenia.
