Yerevan, also spelled Erevan, Iravan, Erivan or Ayrivan, is the capital of Armenia. This largest city in the country is located on the Hrazdan River and has been playing the role of capital since 1918, with the beginning of the First Republic. Its position in the Ararat plain has given a great advantage to this amazing town, contributing to its turning into the most important city of the young republic at the time. Since then, Yerevan has seriously assumed this responsibility and has managed to satisfy all the requirements imposed on it.
