Gyumri, the second largest city in Armenia, is in the country's north-western region. Gyumri, one of the oldest settlements in Armenia with a three thousand-year history, is a beautiful destination to come and admire. Formed as Kumairi, the city was renamed Alexandropol between 1837 and 1924 during Russian rule. During the Soviet era, it was known as Leninakan, but since 1990 it has been known as Gyumri. Each name introduced a different period of history, politics, and people. Gyumri has always been a cultural and innovative city. It was once regarded as a hub of art and craft. It is a breeding ground for skilled art historians, writers, and craftsmen. Armen Tigranyan's opera "Anush" premiere performance took place in 1912 in Alexandrapol/Gyumri.

Visit a unique museum of the great Armenian artist Mher Mkrtchyan, which may be especially interesting for Armenians and people from the post-Soviet area (Mkrtchyan played in many Soviet movies). See photos, books, posters, and much more from the Soviet Armenian era. Then stop at the 19th-century church that survived two earthquakes — Holy Saviour's Church, and relish its beauty and rich exterior of black stone.
