Yerevan (Armenia) Vacation Travel Video Guide
Travel video about destination Yerevan in Armenia.
Yerevan is the capital of Armenia and is a city that is twenty nine years older than Rome. In 408 A.D., the Armenian alphabet was created with thirty six letters and thus began a new era of history, culture and the spiritual world of the Armenian people. On the basis of these first manuscripts and subsequent translations, Armenia’s first library was founded in the fifth century. Old Yerevan contains traditional buildings with wonderful entrances and carved wooden adornments that continue into the actual living areas. The facades of multi-coloured decorative stone are quite fascinating. Oriental design reveals the original influence. On the western hill above the city is the Memorial Of The Genocide Of The Armenian People. New gravestones commemorate the victims of the conflict on Karabach Mountain. Arranged in a circle, basalt steles protect a flickering eternal flame like a closing hand from distant times. In the eyes of the Turks, the Christian Armenians posed a major threat. Taverns often feature singing, dancing and good food. Armenian music is very varied, often sounds oriental, and literally invites one to dance! The folk dances are quite acrobatic and dancers almost fall into a state of ecstasy due to the constant pulse of the music. Today Yerevan is a vibrant city that has become a booming metropolis in the South Caucasus and is one of the oldest cities in the world, a living reminder of the ancient Orient!
