Full description
At the beginning of the day, your guide will meet you at your hotel in Yerevan before heading to the Shirak Province, where Gyumri is located. Uncover Gyumri's Old Town, Kumayri with its antique architecture style, wooden balconies and colorful facades. It is one of the few spots in the country where the authentic urban Armenian architecture has been preserved. The district holds over 1,000 buildings, telling the story of the city’s past. Gyumri suffered greatly during the devastating earthquake of 1988, but has courageously got on its feet again. After exploring all the city's major landmarks you will drive to one of the city's most popular restaurants, Cherkezi Dzor, where you can enjoy a delicious fresh fish caught straight from the restaurant's private ponds. After a yummy dinner, you will drive to the railway station to catch the train back to Yerevan.
