Yerevan Walking Tour

The best way to get acquainted with Yerevan is to do as the locals do and walk. This both saves time (parking is impossible and traffic jams are now par for the course, adding 20-30 minutes to what were once 5 minute jaunts) while allowing you to savor the sights and sounds of the city.

Ring Park Walking Tour

Ring Park is probably the most walked area of Yerevan, after Abovyan St.  The park is a long stretch of greenery and trees carved out of the urban landscape, with a number of monuments, cafés, fountains, tennis courts, even a chess house and an aviary. 

A note about Yerevan cafes: these are not simply places to nurse a coffee, many are eateries, with “snack menus” that rival restaurant fare in Europe.  The prices are often much cheaper than in a local restaurant, the food just as good.

Lately it has become a place for cafes of all kinds; from the (relatively) simple collection of canopied tables surrounded by flower beds and a fountain to ever-growing structures combining indoor restaurant-bars with outdoor cafes in exotic settings with live entertainment stages (A ship with sails, Old Rome, a Swiss Chalet are but three vying for your trade). 

The park has become both a magnet for people escaping the summer heat and a place to meet friends, hobnob at a trendy café-bar, or just to sit a spell, sip coffee and perform one the most basic rituals known to humankind; watching the world go by.

The park is bordered north and south by two distinct streets bearing four names; Isahakian / Alec Manukian Streets (north) and Moskovian / Khanjian Streets (south).  It starts on the west one block east of Mashtots Ave and continues for 6 “blocks” to the southeast where it ends at Tigran Mets Ave. where the old Kino Rossiya faces the massive Grigor Lusavorich Cathedral.  Crossroads are Teryan, Abovyan, Nalbandyan, Sayat Nova, Tumanyan (which dead ends at the park) and Vardanants streets.

Start: Ring Park Walking Tour starts at the northwest end of the park, one block east of Mashtots Ave. at the Arbat steps off of Isahakian St.
