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.

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.
