Yerevan is the capital and largest city of Armenia, located in the northwestern part of the country.

There are extensive historical sites, churches and citadels in the city itself and in its surrounding regions (eg, Garni Temple, Zvartnots Cathedral, and Khor Virap).

The most significant of these are the Monastery of Geghard and the Upper Azat Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage Site ocated about 22 miles (37 km) east of Yereven

The monastery complex contains a number of churches and tombs, most of them cut into the rock, and the entire complex of medieval buildings is set in a scenic landscape surrounded by commanding cliffs at the entrance to the Azat Valley.

Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.

Cultural
Historic Landmarks
Central Yerevan is a jewel of early Soviet architecture. In Soviet years, Yerevan underwent massive reconstruction, following architect Alexander Tamanyan's new plans to make a perfect city. His vision was a neo-Classical town with wide avenues to resemble Paris, Vienna and Saint Petersburg. 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.
Churches

Monastery of Geghard

The Geghard complex, located in the upper Azat valley not far from Yerevan, was founded in the 4th century, according to tradition by St Gregory the Illuminator. The first monastery was destroyed by Arabs in the 9th century, but it was flourishing again by the 13th century. It is an exceptionally complete and well-preserved example of a medieval Armenian monastic foundation in a remote area of great natural beauty at the head of the Azat valley, surrounded by towering cliffs. Its churches and tombs cut into the rock had a profound influence on subsequent developments in the region.
