big part

. Vanadzor is Armenia's third largest city, with a population of about 105,000 people. There are a few old churches, however big part of the city has been built during the time of the Soviet Union with a grand central square, a humongous old Soviet chemical factory which has been idle for decades, and a river running through the somewhat narrow valley, surrounded by hills. Most of the attractions in Lori are along the Debed River canyon to the north, or around Stepanavan, and although Vanadzor can be used as a base to explore these due to its perfect transport connection, finding a place closer to them might be preferable. Get in By train There is a railway station. The city lies on the railway connecting Tbilisi and Yerevan. By bus Vanadzor has a perfect bus connection to all cities in northern Armenia. Lots of options, to name a few: Tbilisi 3500 AMD (14 GEL), Idjevan 1000 AMD, Gyumri 500 AMD, Stepanavan 400 AMD, Alaverdi 500 AMD, Dilijan 500 AMD, Byrd, Akhtala, Odzun, Spitak, Tashir, Noyemberian. Marshrutnis (minibuses) from ''Yerevan'' are inexpensive (AMD 1200) and will take you to Vanadzor in a couple of hours. They depart from Kino Rosia, above the Zoravor Andranik metro station, across from the national cathedral. By taxi Shared taxis in Yerevan leave from the same spot as marshrutnis, and are a bit more comfortable, fast and a little more expensive. Virtually any taxi in Yerevan will take you there for 100drams km (33cents US), which adds up to about 12,500 dram, unless you're a good negotiator.
