Yerevan, the capital of Armenia is called “The pink city” because of the color of the stone used for building. Yerevan has been the capital of Armenia since the independence of the First Republic in 1918. Situated in the Ararat plain, the historic lands of Armenia, it served as the best logical choice for capital of the young republic at the time.
