Our Soviet Yerevan Walking Tour is a paid private tour. It covers areas in the center of the city and gives you detailed info about Soviet Armenia history, art, architecture, scientific and cultural life. It shows you the visible and the hidden Soviet stuff 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 statues and monuments, the Children’s Park, typical Soviet Armenian buildings and backyards, Soviet Modernist architecture and a metro ride to the train station and back to the center…
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.
