In springs the city flourishes, the green trees surround this lovely city. In summers the city has other colors, the city life continues until midnight. In the streets you will see a lot of people, tourists just walking in the streets of lovely Yerevan.
The autumns have another beauty; all the green trees change their color wearing the beautiful shades of yellow, red and orange. The winters are cold, but the city is special in a unique way, the streets are decorated and designed for the New Year.
If you have a free day, and you don’t know what to do, you just go outside and walk in the streets of Yerevan. Though this city is not big enough for the capital, it still remains the most important city in Armenia. You can start your day by visiting the Republic Square, the most important place in the city.
