VERNISSAGE -- Yerevan's Flea Market

frontYerevan’s Flea Market is probably one of the best open air markets in world. It is called VERNISSAGE (varnishing, from French) -- a term used for a preview of an art exhibition. A visit to the market could be a full day excursion on a beautiful weekend day where you will find everything from vintage meat grinder parts to puppy dogs for sale. It is a bargain hunter’s heaven.

Vernissage is held behind Republic Square metro on Nalbandyan street, selling everything under the sun. This is your best place to get souvenirs, since the back half has many handicrafts including ceramics, carved wood, stone, lace, needlework, dolls, paintings, jewelry and other things such as carpets, books and t-shirts. Rummage around this exciting and colorful market on weekends -- open from Spring to Autumn (weather permitting).

I have been visited Aragatsotn about a year ago. It is one of the most beautiful, mountainous regions of Armenia. In addition to its raw natural beauty, the region, with more than 1000 historical monuments has much more to offer- Amberd Castle, Byurakan Observatory, Park of Alphabet, monasteries Ohanavank, Saghmosavank, Mughni, Tsiranavor, Aruch temple, Lake Kari and many more. Shirak encompasses the alluring Mount Aragats (Armenia’s highest peak- 4090 m.), and its picturesque foothills.
