What Country is Gyumri in?
Gyumri (formerly Kyumayri and later Alexsandrapol) is the second largest city and cultural capital of Armenia, 144 km from the capital Yerevan. It is located in the province of Shirak. If you are interested in culture and want to spend some time in a place that inspires artists to create new works, then travel to Gyumri – the city of music, humour, science, a city with a rich theatre history and present, a city writers, artists, singers and athletes. This list seems a little long for a place that was destroyed during the earthquake of 1987, but it rose like a phoenix from the ruins and thanks to the will of the people of Gyumri it preserved its uniqueness, where at every step one could see the spirit of the 19th century.
