Yerevan Walking Tour
Today we explore Yerevan, the most dynamic capital in the Caucasus. It's a beautiful European city built by the local pink stone named "tuf". Yerevan as one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities of the world has a history of 2800 years. It's 29years older than Rome.
We tour the Republic Square with it magnificent buildings enhanced by singing fountains. Walking down the Abovyan Street, one of the oldest streets in Yerevan which was on the Great Silk Road, Northern Avenue built for the pedestrians.
We also visit the Cascade which is a colossal white stairwell built on a Yerevan hillside in the 1970s, with water fountains running down the sides, all reminiscent of a natural river or stream cascading. It houses Gerard Cafesjian Art Museum, which is Armenia's largest repository of modern art with the Sculpture Garden at the base of the Cascade. It's a world class museum, indeed. Tours ends at the Republic Square.
