The Parliament
Gateway and symbol

Yerevan is the navel of the world in Armenian terms. This is where you usually arrive and leave the country. This is where everybody hassles and bustles, Armenian style, and this is the place to show off your latest outfit. Please, no sneakers! The center of all is a square, or rather a circle, where the main administrative, cultural and business buildings are located. From here more circles and boulevards radiate outbound until they hit some insurmountable physical feature or the dull buildings of the suburbs. I was on my way to use the word Soviet instead of dull but realized quickly that the architectural wonders of the main square were also build during this period. So, fantasy knows no bounds especially when there is cultural background and desire to make the best of it.
