In the trilingual Behistun inscription, carved in the order of Darius the Great of Persia, the country referred to as Urartu in Babylonian is called Armenia in Old Persian.

It is largest city of Armenia as well as one of the world's oldest continuously inhabited cities. In addition to this video, also check out my blog post "10 reasons why I fell in love with Yerevan, Armenia": http://grazandbeyond.com/10-reasons-why-i-fell-in-love-with-yerevan-armenia/ In this video, you will see Yerevan's most important sights and tourist attractions, including the following: Republic Square can be considered the main square of Yerevan. The Government House, the History Museum and the National Gallery, the Marriott Hotel and several other government buildings are located on this huge square. Originally designed by Alexander Tamanyan in 1924, Republic Square is the favorite hangout of the locals. With its unique pink neoclassical buildings and the reflecting pool, Republic Square can easily be considered Yerevan’s architectural highlight. What I found remarkable about this square was the unified architectural style – all buildings share the same pink-ish and yellow-ish neoclassical design. The Cascade is a staircase that connects Yerevan’s center (Kentron) with the Monument neighborhood. It consists of multiple levels and a total of 572 steps. Apart from its architectural magnificence, the Cascade offers sweeping views of the city and, on clear days, mighty Mount Ararat in the background. The Cafesjian Center for the Arts is an arts museum located within the Cascade complex. It offers a variety of exhibitions and dozens of modern and contemporary sculptures by well-known international sculptors. The sculptures are scattered around Cascade Park, the green area in the lower section of the Cascade complex.

Did you know Armenia is in fact a European country? Probably not.. Here are 7 other facts about this wonderfull corner of the world. ------------------------------------------------ Watch the entire series here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLbZJ71IJGFRTa_XMM9a4hDh2Yo9CsZzOR Follow: https://plus.google.com/+blinder00 https://twitter.com/Sebastian2Go https://www.facebook.com/official7facts ------------------------------------------------ In this brief video you can find seven little known facts about Armenia, a country in the far East corner of Europe, in the Caucasus Region. It is a country with a rich history,criss-crossed with great achievements and very hard times. Due to Armenia's location, most people think it’s a Russian or middle eastern country, however the country is definitely a European land with many unknowns to discover. More information about the video content bellow: 1. Armenia was the first place ever to adopt Christianity as its official religion, before the Roman Empire, before England, before everywhere else. King Tiridates III was the man who made it happen in AD 301, giving the country a massive headstart in all things christian. Which explains all the splendid churches. Including the worlds’ first ever church: the Holy Etchmiadzin. It was in the early 4th century. This place is also the headquarter of all the churches in Armenia and it’s one of the most visited pilgrimage site in the world. 2. Around three million people call Armenia home, but a whopping eight million more live in other countries – mainly Russia, the US, the Balkans and the Middle East. 3. Armenia has its own equivalent of the Olympics. The Pan-Armenian Games come complete with its own over the top opening ceremony and all the usual sports you can find in the regular Olympics. There are even Summer and Winter games. But you need to be Armenian or of Armenian descent, to take part. 4. The Wings of Tatev is the world's longest non-stop two-way cable car and it's in Armenia, travelling 1,000 feet over an epic gorge. 5. The country’s national symbol is Mt. Ararat. But Mt. Ararat is actually located in Turkey. It is where the biblical story of “Noah’s Ark” took place. Whether that story is fact or fiction is not the point. The point is that the mountain is historical and incredible. And although it is inside of Turkey, Armenians get the best view of it, most famously, from Khor Virap. 6. Chess is a compulsory subject in schools. All students have to take chess as a compulsory subject in school and there are even exams for it. 7. Yerevan, the capital of Armenia, is also known as the “pink city”. Her buildings were all made of naturally coloured volcanic rocks of varying shades of pink, hence giving her the name “pink city”. ------------------------------------------------ More info: http://www.meganstarr.com/2013/11/11-random-facts-about-armenia.html http://dave.uktv.co.uk/24-hours-to-go-broke/24-hours-go-broke-trivia/gallery/10-things-you-didnt-know-about-armenia/ http://sunriseodyssey.com/12-interesting-facts-about-armenia-that-you-might-not-know http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tiridates_III_of_Armenia Music: UncleBibby – Punch It http://freemusicarchive.org/ Images: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Flag_map_of_Armenia.svg http://www.citelighter.com/political-science/countries/knowledgecards/armenia http://www.citelighter.com/political-science/countries/knowledgecards/armenia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Etchmiadzin_Cathedral http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Armenians http://gypsysoulitchyfeete.com/insider-insight-yerevan-armenia/ http://armenpress.am/eng/news/796346/participants-of-pan-armenian-games-united-in-their-demands-on-armenian-genocide.html http://100years100facts.com/facts/armenians-world-sport-range-princes-took-part-ancient-olympic-games-modern-world-champions/ http://waveuptravel.com/travel-photoblog/secret-armenia-sights/ http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Wings_of_Tatev_View.jpg http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mount_Ararat http://www.wildfrontierstravel.com/en_GB/destination/armenia/group-tours/master/2000267/armenia-in-the-shadow-of-mt-ararat http://www.westerlylibrary.org/contentmgr/showdetails.php/id/2157 https://shantshahrigian.wordpress.com/2011/11/01/learning-chess-in-armenian-schools/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yerevan http://www.adventurous-travels.com/2013/07/yerevan-armenia-pink-city.html

The early settlement was centered on the steep-sided bluff now known as Van Castle (Van Kalesi), close to the edge of Lake Van and a few kilometers west of the modern city. Here have been found Urartian cuneiform inscriptions dating to the 8th and 7th centuries BC. In the trilingual Behistun inscription, carved in the order of Darius the Great of Persia, the country referred to as Urartu in Babylonian is called Armenia in Old Persian.
