'' are rather few in number with only one church on Nar-Dos street. ''Anglican (Episcopal)'' Christians used to congregate at St Zoravor church for Sunday Eucharist, however shortly after stopped the practice due to extreme small size of the community (and the fact that both Armenian Apostolic Church and Anglican Communion adhere to the concept of one baptism and welcome each other's members to celebrate Eucharist together). ''Orthodox Christians'' currently maintain one church in Kanaker district of Yerevan. A new, large-scale, onion-domed Orthodox Cathedral of the Holy Cross is under construction at Yerevan Lake district, visible from the highway coming from the airport. However, this will have mostly symbolic structure as the Orthodox Christians are very few in number. ''Assyrians'' do not have church in Yerevan per se, but rather in the villages around Yerevan. ''Yezidi'' (pagan religious and ethnic minority in Armenia) religious rituals, as most of that religion, are kept secret. So no Yezidian practice can be observed easily in Yerevan. ''Muslims'' are steadily growing in numbers since the collapse of the Soviet State, fueled by the Iranian immigration. There is currently one Mosque on Mashtots Ave. Many Christian sects are also present in Yerevan, and they congregate in schools, sport clubs, concert halls and the like.

Yerevan

'''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.
