Armenia's capital Yerevan. Its the capital to a country with a long history including the times when Armenia was a part of the Soviet Union. Major reconstruction of Yerevean started in 1924 during its Soviet occupation. During this period the city's appearance changed since church-like architecture was introduced and new streets created. Most of the old buildings were destroyed. It was a new era for Yerevan. Armenia's beauty is not actually found at its modern cities. The real beauty is found at the mountains, where nature itself lies undisturbed with breathtaking picturesque landscapes.
The main air carrier is the Armavia. The airport is under reconstruction and compared to the airports in Moscow, the taxi drivers there are a bit disciplined. No one will run upto you trying to convince you to take his services.
The city seems to have been invaded by advertisers that even street signs have adverts in them, as this one above.
During the weekends there is a big Vernissage at the city. Here you can buy anything up to old souvenirs.
They sell tablecloths, scarves, and also old clothes. There are many tourists in the Vernissage and the dealers speak English.
Old utencils at display.
A variety of badges on sale at the Vernissage.
Carpets here are so expensive compared to the Iraninan made ones.
The subway here has a double wagonned train. Intervals between the trains are long.
The subway stations are also full of adverts.
The central station of the subway. Its in dire condition. Looks like its been untouched for the last 20 years.
You can find such quiet neighborhoods at the city center.
And a masterpiece of unprofessional construction at the city center.
