"Architectural Treasures of Yerevan" is a 1-day guided tour around the churches of Yerevan. Yerevan, the capital of Armenia, is one of the world’s oldest cities. In 2018, we will celebrate the 2800th anniversary of the foundation of the Erebuni Fortress. Also, Armenia was the first country in the world to adopt Christianity as its state religion, and throughout centuries, many churches and monasteries were built here. Not all of them survived to this day, unfortunately. Some were destroyed in natural disasters (earthquakes, floods, etc.), others fell to the invasions of the enemies (Arabs, Persians, Turks, etc.), and of course, many churches were destroyed during the early years of the Soviet rule when architectural monuments and were being blown up. “Churches of Yerevan” is a tour around the Christian churches of Armenia’s capital – from the oldest to the largest.
