Yerevan sits in Armenia where chess is a compulsory school subject and the apricot fruit's orange color is the symbol of its flag (think apricot wine, juice, dried, fresh and anything else you can do with an apricot). Armenia was converted to Christianity in 301AD and today 97% of its population is Christian. The pink city of Yerevan sits in one of the only mono-ethnic countries in the world, where more than 95% of its population are actually Armenian.
It is a city full of contradictions, where old-fashioned teahouses sit beside funky European-style wine bars and the street fashion is anything from babushka to hipster. The cost of living is high, the local transport is overflowing with bodies and air pollution is a constant problem in this quirky city of delights. Satisfying hunger pangs is no drama as there are wall-to-wall cafes lining tree-filled boulevards and smothering the popular Republic Square every night during the summer. In the winter the seething horde moves inside to the warmth of the "pandoks" (taverns) where barbecue meat and fruit vodka is de rigueur.
There is a lot of mischief that you can get up to whilst in Yerevan, apart from asking total strangers to take photographs of you in various locations like the Children's Railway. There are many odd museums to poke around, such as the Geology Museum with a mammoth skeleton in the middle of its display of types of stones. Take a look at Yerevan from a different point of view and go to the top of the Cascade Complex and feel the spirit of the city from above. You should wander around the city and investigate areas such as the B1 Quarter (aka Bangladesh area) overflowing with massive Soviet apartment complexes squeezed together like sardines in a tin, or head to the depressive Noubarashen Prison if you want a downer moment. The Gortsaranayin Subway Station location has a lot of abandoned old factories that are great for the photography enthusiast.
There are 12 districts in total, to confuse and astound you.
