YEREVAN

Yerevan is the capital of Armenia.

The Armenian kingdom of Urartu was formed in the 9th century B.C. in the basin of Lake Van in the Armenian Highlands. Erebuni-Yerevan is 2795. In the 5th year of his reign the king Argishti the First built it as a town-fortress. Cuneiform record left by Argishti the First tell the following: “In the greatness of the god Khald, Argishti, Menua’s son, has built this impregnable fortress and called it Erebuni for the power of the country of Biaini and to enemies’ horror. This remained historical record gave an opportunity to scientists to make more accurate the date of birth of Yerevan – 782 B.C.

Erebuni-Yerevan was founded 29 years earlier than Rome

On May 28, 1918 Yerevan was declared as the capital of the Republic of Armenia, and on November 29, 1920 – as the capital of Soviet Armenia.

On September 21, 1921 Yerevan became not only a capital of the independent Republic of Armenia, but also of all Armenian people spread all over the world.
Since the 19th century Yerevan has become one of the most important centers of Armenian culture, and after becoming the capital of independent country it has become the main center of development.

EREBUNI MUSEUM

Erebuni museum, which is concerned with the history of the establishment of Yerevan, was founded on May 24, 1968. The finds discovered from the three famous archaeological sites of Arin Berd, Karmir Blur and Shengavit, situated in the administrative boundaries of Yerevan, were the scientific reason for the foundation of the museum.  The museum opened its doors to an audience on October 19, 1968 in honour of the 2750th anniversary of Yerevan city.

The Erebuni settlement is located on Arin Berd, which is situated between Nor-Aresh and Vardashen districts in the south-eastern suburbs of Yerevan. It was constructed in 782 BC by one of the greatest kings of Urartu, Argishti the First (786-765 / 764 BC). The museum building imitates the construction of an Urartian palace and preserves the principle of the people’s houses with external soundproof walls and a smooth roof around the internal yard. Every year thousands of citizens of the Republic of Armenia and tourists visit the museum leaving notes of their impressions in the note-register of the museum.  In 2009 the museum had 17200 visitors.

TSITSERNAKABERD

Tsitsernakaberd Memorial Complex is dedicated to the memory of the 1.5 million Armenians who died in the first genocide of the 20th century, at the hands of the Turkish government. Completed in 1967, the Genocide Monument has since become a pilgrimage site and an integral part of Yerevan’s architecture. Every year on April 24—the Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day – thousands of Armenians gather at the memorial to commemorate the victims of the genocide.

The complex occupies 4500 square meters of territory and consists of three main buildings: the Memorial Wall, the Sanctuary of Eternity (Memorial Hall & Eternal Flame) and the Memorial Column “The Reborn Armenia.”

The Armenian Genocide Museum-Institute opened its doors in 1995 on the occasion of the 80th anniversary of the genocide. The structure of the museum, planned by architects Sashur Kalashian, Lyudmila Mkrtchyan and sculptor F. Araqelyan, has followed a unique design.
