Are you going to visit Armenia with the whole family? In this case, information about the most interesting and entertaining places where you can go with children will be useful to you.
Yerevan Park is the largest urban amusement park where you can spend the whole day with your family, from morning to evening. By paying for the entrance ticket, you get the opportunity to use all the attractions without exception․ The park is divided into a closed area, which is also open in winter, and an open area, where the biggest attractions are located. Here you can have a bite to eat or have dinner at the food court.
Town of professions “Citizen”
Citizen is a real small city with its own buildings, streets, transport and city square. There is a school, a confectionery, a hospital, a police station, a beauty salon and much more. During the entertainment program, children will be able to try themselves in various professions: conduct a lesson with students, receive patients, investigate a crime. In the meantime, while the children are busy, parents can relax here in the cafe.
In the Yerevan Zoo you can see interesting exotic animals, and not only in cages. Many enclosures are close to their natural habitat, and in a separate area you can see lemurs walking in the wild, just like in the Disney cartoon <<Madagascar>>. During certain hours (scheduled), visitors can also watch the feeding of animals.
Game center “Neptune kids”
<<Neptune Kids>> is a place where children of all ages will find something to do. There is entertainment for kids, a play area, the opportunity to get creative and create various crafts, as well as slot machines for older children. While the children are having fun, parents can enjoy a cup of coffee in peace. Here you can dine with the whole family or celebrate children’s parties.
Chocolate Factory (Ashtarak)
In the city of Ashtarak, located not far from the capital, a real magical journey into the world of chocolate awaits you, just like in the famous children’s fairy tale movie! In the “House of Chocolate” you can learn interesting details about the history of everyone’s favorite delicacy, take part in a master class, pack chocolate bars with your own hands and, of course, taste chocolate with a variety of fillings.
From spring to late autumn in the central square of the city you can see the show of singing fountains. With the onset of darkness, music is turned on here, under which a bizarre dance of light and water jets is “performed”. A fascinating spectacle, from which it is impossible to tear oneself away, will certainly appeal to both children and adults.
During the cold season, one of the favorite activities of children of all ages is ice skating. There are several skating rinks in the city – an indoor skating rink in the sports and concert complex named after Karen Demirchyan, an outdoor skating rink in the Winter Park and an outdoor skating rink on Swan Lake in the very center of the capital. Skates of the right size can be rented on site.
If you really want to ride, and winter is still far away, the best alternative would be a trip to the rollerdrome. There are two rollerdromes in Yerevan – “Roller Park” in the Rio Mall shopping center (Papazyan street) and “Roller Skates” in the Mega Mall shopping center (Gay Avenue).
Aquapark “Water World”
The “Water World” water park is a great all-day entertainment that can be a real lifesaver in the summer heat. Here, both kids, for whom there is a safe water zone, and older children, who will obviously like water attractions, steep “pipes” and water slides, will have a great time.
Museums in Yerevan
If you are planning a trip with teenagers, you should definitely visit the museums of the Armenian capital, of which there are many. Depending on the age and interests of your children, you can opt for the National Art Gallery, the Historical Museum, the Museum of Modern Art.
