If you want to explore the capital city of Yerevan as a local, you can join walking tours across the historic districts of Yerevan with a local tour guide and discover the narrow streets of Kond, the cozy corners of Firdus quarter, or get a cup of coffee and enjoy the singing fountains at the Republic Square in the evenings.
It seems like a lot to do, but wait, there is more!
If you are more fond of the calm and quiet, you can join local workshops, such as pottery making, painting, and soap making. You can also participate in food masterclasses, such as lavash baking, vodka and winemaking, tolma, harissa, arista making, and many other unique and local experiences. Fortunately, such workshops are available in Yerevan and the surrounding areas, where they can be combined with sightseeing.
