We started this journey in Yerevan and quite frankly except for the beautiful church this could be any lovely street in Lviv. It has no similarity to what we experienced in Armenia.

Experience the spirit of the city while enjoying a stroll through the streets, Armenian street being a great place to start! Go explore, and grab a cup of black coffee at a local cafe while you're at it!

We used a travel guide to go through armenian quarter. We happened to be on Su morning service at the cathedral and it was very inspiring. Armenian church is one of the oldest denomination, and liturgy was impressive. Make sure you pay attention on fresco work inside.

Armenian street is the main street of the Armenian quarter, the place where Armenians lived in the medieval Lviv. It has an incredible Armenian church located on it, particular Armenian houses and several restaurants with Armenian style. With the tour guide Armenian quarter will be even more interesting…

There are a couple of pretty good Armenian restaurants there, but the highlight is Virmenski Sobor, an impressive cathedral built in 1370.
