Photographer's Note

Last year Yerevan was celebrating its 2796th anniversary. It is one of the world's oldest cities and has been the capital of Armenia since 1918. The history of Yerevan starts from the 8th century BC, with the founding of the fortress of Erebuni by Urartian King Algishti. At those times in history it was predominantly named Erebuni, that's why usually we call it Erebuni-Yerevan.

During celebration people entertained for a week at various festivals, watching the folk dancing groups and trying local food.
