'''Yerevan''' ( Situated along the Hrazdan River, Yerevan is the administrative, cultural, and industrial center of the country. It has been the capital (Historical capitals of Armenia) since 1918, the thirteenth in the history of Armenia, and the seventh located in or around the Ararat plain.
The history of Yerevan dates back to the 8th century BC, with the founding of the fortress of Erebuni (Erebuni Fortress) in 782 BC by king Argishti I (Argishti I of Urartu) at the western extreme of the Ararat plain. The city expanded rapidly during the 20th century as Armenia (Soviet Armenia) became part of the Soviet Union. In a few decades, Yerevan was transformed from a provincial town within the Russian Empire, to Armenia's principal cultural, artistic, and industrial center, as well as becoming the seat of national government.
With the growth of the economy of the country (Economy of Armenia), Yerevan has been undergoing major transformation as many parts of the city have been the recipient of new construction since the early 2000s, and retail outlets such as restaurants, shops, and street cafes, which were rare during Soviet times, have multiplied.
As of 2011, the population of Yerevan was 1,060,138, making up to 35.1% of the total population of Armenia.
Yerevan was named the 2012 World Book Capital by UNESCO.
