Yerevan is the capital of the Republic of Armenia and one of the three hubs of the South Caucasus. Central Yerevan is a true jewel of early Soviet architecture. In Soviet days Yerevan had already become known as the Pink City as much due to the colour of the stone used for building as for the flamboyant spirit of her young population.
With a continental climate, Yerevan experiences long hot summers, and cold winters, both with little or no humidity. Spring offers mild but sometimes wet weather, and lots of green hills and wildflowers. Summer is very hot, but the long, late nights at the cafes, and the fruits and vegetables are amazing. Fall is the most popular, with perfect weather, and great farm fresh foods.
Zvartnots International Airport (EVN) is the main gate to Armenia. Between the airport and the city is only 14km from Yerevan city centre by road. A public bus is available during the day-time will take you to the Opera House in central Yerevan.
You may want to use taxis that are the official transport of Zvartnots Airport - AeroTaxi so that in case of losing your baggage, you always know where to find it.
An overnight (sleeper)train runs every second day from Tbilisi in Georgia. The wagons are the standard Soviet era hold-overs but they are fairly comfortable.
Options include arriving into Armenia via Georgia or Iran. A drive to Yerevan from Armenia-Iran border will take approximately 6 hours, and is a great way to explore Southern Armenia, cities like Meghri, Kapan, Goris, Sisian, etc.
Arriving from Georgia will allow you to drive trough Northern Armenia and driving to Yerevan will take 4-5 hours.
The center of Yerevan is very compact and easy to get around by foot. Be aware, that there are recently introduced penalties for jaywalking and crossing the streets in non-designated areas, and once spotted by police, you will have to pay a fine of AMD 3000. A nice walk if you like nature and not cars, is through the Hrazdan gorge on the margins of the city center.
By Subway (Metro)
The Subway system in Yerevan is quite reliable and relatively modern, having been built in the early 1980s. It is the quickest way around town, and at 100 dram, the cheapest aside from walking.
