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.

Over 14200 manuscripts kept in SRI are in Armenian, the rest ones are in foreign languages – Greek, Latin, Aramaic, Hebrew, Arabic, Persian, Old Slavonic, Ethiopic, Japanese and others. Unique examples of translation are kept here, the origins of which weren’t saved.

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.

YEREVAN BRANDY COMPANY

Yerevan Brandy Company was founded in 1887 by a merchant Nerses Tairyants with the help of Vasily Tayrov. The enterprise reached its glory in 1898, when it was acquired by Nikolay Shustov, a well-known Russian vodka and liqueur producer. During the International Exhibition in Paris in 1900, the brandy received the Grand-Prix and the legal right to be called ‘cognac’, not ‘brandy’.
