A side of Yerevan, you haven’t seen, people you haven’t met, experiences you haven’t had. Being in Surreal Yerevan never felt so real.
We open doors which take you deeper into Yerevan living with a surreal twist. Our unique guide is more like a movie personality, who will not only explain things to you but will also “narrate” what you should do.
The tour will start right in the middle of the Republic Square, yeah, there’s no way to miss it, right in the middle.
The first task is at the Persian Consulates office where you can admire the picturesque frescoes and travel through time with a special time machine.
Oh dear, traveling to the second stop is going to be “fancy.” Soaring to the heights of local ambitions, a young boy with his “jeyran” LADA is going to accompany you to….
To the Chess House. Yes, everything is precise in Armenia, just like chess, each move has a consequence and now it’s your time to make a move. Like Jumanji, you will make your move, but we don’t know how the game proceeds until the next group visits and continues. You will be periodically updated on the conditions of the “battlefront” until that game finishes.
The LADA fun will continue as we reach the open doors of the State Philharmonic Orchestra. You are granted an exclusive entrance to the rehearsal of the Orchestra, please be quiet, this is a Great Establishment (read with a Russian accent).
A short stop at Independence Square to learn why it is called “Independence.”
TUMO studio exhibits our best chance for survival, and by “our” we mean Armenians. Bright and talented young people creating marvelous handicrafts. Here’s your chance to meet them, become friends with them and create your own souvenir to keep it forever (promise-promise).
