Where’s It At
Yerevan, Armenia’s capital is an attractive city of boulevards and stylish buildings structured on volcanic tuffa stone. It’s one of the oldest cities in the world dating back over 2000 years but virtually no pre-twentieth century architecture survives. Most of the buildings date from Soviet times. The city lies in a valley and from most places the towering Mount Ararat, the resting place of Noah’s Ark, can be seen. The best way to get to the flea market in town by tram.
The Vernisaj flea market, popular with tourists, attracts sellers of all kinds of goods from antique to junk, souvenirs, collectibles and old jumble. It helps to bring out US Dollars with you as it’s a better status currency to trade in and holds a higher street value.
