Life in Yerevan

Yerevan is the capital and largest city of Armenia with more than one million residents. The city has many cultural options including libraries, museums, art galleries, and the State Opera House. Yerevan is known for its safety and warm smiles, making it a welcoming place to live. Even though it’s the capital city it has a slower pace compared to other big cities, which makes it easier to relax and enjoy simple things. The official language is Armenian, and while English is spoken in tourist areas, learning basic phrases is always a good idea. Yerevan is a unique place to call home, and you will truly enjoy the low cost of living, relaxed lifestyle, and their deep connection to history.

You can move to Yerevan by yourself, with a friend or as a couple. There are pros and cons to all of the situations. If you consider moving abroad with any kind of friend it can be a really good idea to sit down and talk through practical and everyday stuff such as economy, bills, cleaning, grocery shopping, cooking vs ordering, going out/staying in, how you deal with potentially going out without each other as well as having friends and family visiting (from near and far and extended visits). Apart from the practical arrangements, life is fun when you can share your new core memories with other people – so it is very recommendable to move abroad together. Moving with a friend can cause you to interact less with new people compared to if you move abroad by yourself. But if this is a good or a bad thing entirely depends on your personal goals and wishes as well as your personality.

Conclusion: communication is key if you and your friend decide to move abroad together

Still not sure about moving to Yerevan?

Still not sure about working and living in Yerevan? That’s okay. Big decisions take time. But here’s a thought: imagine yourself on a autumn day in Yerevan. Walking through a park, you smell roasting chestnuts. From a neighbouring cafe, where friends gather, lively and vibrant laughter  erupts. Take time to absorb it all, and something warms you that has nothing to do with the sun. Yerevan might not be on everyone’s radar, but it has a way of speaking to your soul, its history whispering stories in your ear, and its people welcoming you with open arms. Maybe Yerevan isn’t your forever, but it could be the start of an unforgettable adventure. So, close your eyes, take a deep breath, and picture yourself there. Yerevan might just surprise you.
