Yerevan's ancient and new churches, Christian monuments, and the rich history of the Armenian Apostolic Church on this tour.

Card image cap

In 301 A.D. Armenia was the first in the world to adopt Christianity as a state religion. The overwhelming majority of the country's population is Christian. Echmiadzin Cathedral is the main church of Armenia, located in the complex of the Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin, which is the administrative center of the Armenian Apostolic Church located in the former capital of Vagharshapat.

Besides modern churches, Yerevan is rich in many medieval churches. They are the models of ancient stone architecture of the capital. These monuments that preserve the imprints of the earliest and medieval architectural creativity, stand today in many parts of Yerevan testifying its Christian identity.
