The city of Yerevan is 210 square kilometers (82 square miles) in size. There are a lot of attractions in Yerevan that are worth seeing when visiting Armenia.

The Memorial Park and Genocide Museum of Armenians - The memorial complex to the victims of the Armenian genocide in 1915 towers over Tsitsernakaberd hill. At the center of the monument, there is the Memorial Sanctuary with an eternal flame and twelve, tall basalt slabs leaning over the flame.
