What Else to Do: Yerevan

Tour Armenia
Updated 2014

Yerevan has a variety of things to do, beyond the requisite church gazing and Ararat longing. If you find you have the time, here are some ideas:

Movies

Kino Nairi
The theatre of choice, because of its small size and funky atmosphere. English language films at 10 p.m. Includes two bars: Underground and 5th Element. Cool venue, 1000 AMD price.

Kino Moscow
Abovian Street, by Hotel Yerevan
Just renovated, large and ornate, but not nearly as fun as Kino Nairi. Popcorn is puny compared to the states. Most films are in Russian, they promise to start showing them in their original language beginning September. Worth the visit to see the renovation, and you have to see an American film dubbed in Russian just once!

Water, Swimming

Water World 638 998, 633 430, 644 994
40 Miasnikian Ave
Yerevan's version of water theme parks, as done by Italians.
3500 AMD basic entry includes all rides, pools, beach towel and uncovered baking in the sun; 4500 AMD VIP entry includes everything in Basic plus an air mattress and covered spaces for basking. No food allowed, you have to buy everything there: 1000 AMD for 250 grams of khorovats, beer is 400 AMD. Open 12-8:30 p.m., Fri-Sat until 9 p.m. when free disco opens.

Swimming Pool, Marx St. (behind Gold Mall)
renovated, clean, full of kids during daytime, but free early morning and late evening.
14,000 AMD pre month (2000 AMD for medical check, required but cursory). Open 7:30-21.00.

Swimming Pool, Youth Palace Hotel, above Abovian Square
Clean pool, kids during daytime, free early am and evening. 14,000 AMD per month (2000 medical check), open 7.30-20.00

Swimming Pool, Hotel Yerevan
Rooftop tiny pool good for soaking and hob-nobbing. $70/month.

Swimming Pool, Hotel Ararat.
Small but refreshing, $30/month.

Bowling

Achapeniaks, off of Kievian (cross bridge and turn right, bowling is located in old movie house, signs galore)
Yerevan must have come of age, the pregnant men have something to brag about on Wednesday nights! 6000 AMD per hour until 6 pm, 8000 AMD per hour after 6 pm.

Golf

Golf Course, Ashtarak Highway outside of town, just below Red Cross Hospital.
5000 AMD per hour for a tiny course--the putt-putt course looks half the size of the entire thing. This is a practice field, not a real course. Need to think big and go up a mountain for some invigorating air.

Horse Riding, Archery, Target Shooting

10 Tasik Khas 361 010
1, 3rd Ravine, Yeghvard Highway, Davitashen
Yee haw! ride, shoot and live like an Armenian cowboy! Restaurant-Bar, Russian Bath house, café, billiards also included--why go anywhere else?

Casinos

Diamond Casino 534 011
18 Mashtots Ave.
open 11 am to dawn
Not spent it all at Vernisage? These folks will help you in a NY second. Risky place.

Children

Hekiat
Tumanian at Abovian
Leave the kids for an hour or two and they can while away the hours playing games, watching shows, doing kids stuff. 1000 AMD+.

Zoo
Sevan Highway, below Massis.
Still a great visit, if the cages can be depressing.
100-1000AMD.
