Yerevan also offers an ideal base for exploring the surrounding countryside, dotted with remote monasteries and churches overlooking picturesque mountain landscape, zigzagging cliffs and river gorges.
Key landmarks such as Republic Square, Opera House and the beautiful Cascade Complex evokes some of the best Soviet-Armenian architectures reminiscent of Renaissance-era Europe. Much of Armenia's key attractions can be visited as a day trip from Yerevan, including Khor Virap set against biblical Mount Ararat, Echmiadzin which is home to the world's oldest cathedral nicknamed as 'the Vatican of Armenia', Geghard monastery which is partially carved out from mountain cliffs, the Garni temple overlooking deep gorges, and 7th century Zvarnort ruins.
