Aside from visiting historical landmarks, we highly recommend a tour of Armenia’s beloved capital – the city of Yerevan.
Legend says that the first word Noah pronounced as he exited the ark was “Yerevats” – translated as “it is seen”. This refers to the land he supposedly saw after the huge flood, which was later changed to “Yerevan”. In addition, you can find the real etymology of the word Yerevan during our first stop of the day – the museum of Erebuni, where the history of Yerevan starts.
After you will visit the house-museum of Sergey Parajanov, one of the greatest film directors of the 20th century: a man that had no boundaries. Here, you will discover how this exceptional individual managed to keep his free spirit and c reactivity in a world where it was not encouraged. The museum also offers one of the best view points of the city.
The tour will take you to Tsitsernakaberd, the memorial of Armenian Genocide. Armenians from all over the world visit this memorial to honor their ancestors.
The last spot included in this daily trip is Yerevan Brandy Factory “Ararat”, where the visitors will have a chance to get familiar with the history of the legendary Armenian Brandy, as well as to taste and purchase brandy directly from the factory.
