Yerevan-walk-North-South.png

This Yerevan walk will take you almost straight north, along an axis that city planner Alexander Tamanyan planned over 75 years ago. Starting with one of Yerevans 's newest landmark, the St. Gregory the Illuminator Cathedral, cutting right through the center of downtown, and then going up the Cascade hillside to Mayr Hayastan (Mother Armenia), you'll see much of the city's Soviet heritage as well as much of the brand new landmarks in the city: the Cathedral, the Northern Avenue and the Cafesjian Museum (under construction) on Cascade.
