Each tour begins with acquaintance with the capital of Armenia, sunny Yerevan. Yerevan is a very sunny city. The number of sunny days in a year exceeds the number of 250. Therefore, Yerevanians will always meet you with a smile and a good mood. Yerevan is one of the oldest cities in the world, and it got the modern look due to an architect from early twentieth century, Alexander Tamanyan. Yerevan is often called a pink city, due to the buildings made with tuff, a volcanic pink stone. The most magical view of the biblical mountain Ararat opens from Yerevan. Where to start?
