Steps taken to make Yerevan a ‘tourist destination’

PanARMENIAN.Net - Head of Culture and Tourism Department of Yerevan Municipality deemed it impossible to implement reforms in the tourism industry in one year.

Maria Baraghamyan voiced confidence that effective programs are being developed to benefit the sector.

“Our capital doesn’t have a tourist landmark. Events are organized to introduce Yerevan as a tourist destination abroad,” she told a press conference.

“Yerevan attracts tourist flows from Italy, France, Germany, CIS countries, the UK and Iran. 3d photo albums enabling the tourists to see the must-see attractions in the city are compiled,” Ms Baraghamyan said, noting Republic Square, Cascade Complex, Yerevan History Museum as popular tourist destinations.

Culture and Tourism Department of Yerevan Municipality has operated for over a year, with measures already specified to target the city’s further development.
