Soviet Yerevan Walking Tour
Our Soviet Yerevan Walking Tour covers Soviet Armenian history, art, architecture, scientific and cultural life. It takes you to areas in the center of the city (and a bit to the south) and shows you the visible and the hidden Soviet time Armenian monuments and buildings and tells you their interesting stories. Some of the highlights of the tour: Republic Square with some of the Soviet details still remaining, a post office, Soviet Armenian statues and monuments, the Children’s Park, typical Soviet Armenian buildings and courtyards, Soviet Armenian Social Modernist (and some Brutalist) architecture and a metro ride to the train station and back to Baghramyan Avenue to the Supreme-Soviet and Polit-Buro buildings of Armenian SSR…
We finish the tour by the Cascade Complex and give you a free copy of Backpackers’ Map of Yerevan and directions up to the Victory Park and Mother Armenia Statue.
