About City

History of Yerevan began in the eighth century BC when the fortress of Erebuni was founded in 782 BC by king Argishti I. Since then, the Armenian capital has been one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world. Yerevan, due to its location was always the center of battles, invasions and clashes by its neighboring empires - Arab, Persian, Ottoman and Russian. The city was leveled to the ground several times not only by invaders but also by natural disasters like earthquakes. Not much of ancient Yerevan has been preserved to this day. The ruins of the Erebuni fortress that give testimony of the greatness of Armenian culture and history are one of the few examples. After the first world war, Yerevan was a small town with only around thirty thousand inhabitants. The survivors of Armenian Genocide started to come back to their fatherland and settle there. In the twentieth century, Armenia became a part of the Soviet Union and Yerevan expanded rapidly during those times. The population grew to around one million within a century.

After the collapse of the Soviet Union, Armenia didn't handle the transition from communism to free market economy very well and many factories, state farms and other forms of industry stopped operating causing many problems in the country's economy. Nowadays, Yerevan is being reconstructed and it reminds a big construction site. There are many new investments in the area although the level of poverty and the shadows of past times of the Communism Era are still clearly noticeable. However, don't let this discourage you from visiting Yerevan in Armenia as it has a lot to offer culturally and historically (more than you would expect from such a small country), not to mention beautiful scenery and nature.


Kazakhstan is located in the center of the Eurasian continent. The country, which occupies 2,724,900 square kilometers, is the ninth largest in the world. Kazakhstan shares borders with Russia in the north (7,591 km, the longest continuous land border in the world), with China in the east (1,783 km), and with Kyrgyzstan (1,242 km), Uzbekistan (2.351 km), and Turkmenistan (426 km) in the south. The total length of the country's land borders is 13,393 km. Kazakhstan is also bordered by both the Caspian and Aral Seas. Part of the former is owned by Kazakhstan while the latter is shared with Uzbekistan. Kazakhstan is the largest country in the world without direct access to the World's Oceans. after Parthian (Iranian), Roman, Arab, Mongol and Persian occupation, Armenia had been substantially weakened. In 1454, the Ottoman Empire and Safavid Persia divided Armenia among themselves.

Kazakhstan is a land of varied terrains: 44% of it is desert and 14% is semi-desert. Much of it is well irrigated, however. 8,500 rivers flow through Kazakhstan and the country is home to 48,000 lakes of varying sizes. The largest of these are the Aral Sea, Balkhash, Zaisan and Alakol. Moreover, 26% of the Kazakhstan's territory is Steppe land and a further 5.5% is covered by forests. Due to its distance from the oceans Kazakhstan has an extreme continental climate. Summers are hot and dry and winters are cold and snowy. The average temperature in January is around −19 °C in the north and −2 °C in the south, whereas the average temperature in July is around 19 °C in the north and 28 °C in the south.
