Gyumri brief information
Gyumri is located in the northwestern part of the region and is the second-largest city of Armenia. Gyumri has long been considered the cultural capital of Armenia. The city is unique as it somehow managed to preserve the atmosphere of the 19th century.
The Kumayri historic district of Gyumri is one of the few places in the Republic of Armenia with authentic historical urban Armenian architecture. Luckily this district has survived two major earthquakes. It has over one thousand 18th and 19th-century buildings, which represent the traditions and culture of Armenian architecture.
