I really don't know how people here can quote prices for anything since Armenia doesn't have a working economy let alone working people for the most part. Armenia is an undeveloped country full of poverty.

Apartments fully furnished in Yerevan city center are normally 140,000.
Anonymous on Aug 28, 2020:
Apartment prices in the small center is minimum 2000$ and it is in the case when the overall building is in awfull condition. If you want to buy apartment in the small center in the building with normal or good condition it will cost you minimum 2500$ . In fact in new building constructions apartment proces might be reach till 3200$ which is crazy expensive for locals and most of that apartments will buy either foreigners or rich armenians from diaspora.

"Yerevan will normally cost 300,000 Amd just for food and transportation"

I live in one of the most expensive cities in North America and my food and transportation cost is not even half of that. Do you have a chauffeur and eat three meals a day at Dolmama?

103,250 Amd isn't nearly enough to live per month in Yerevan or anywhere else in Armenia.A minimum of 175,000 per month would cover food,and transportation and a visit to a club twice per month. I've live in Yerevan 21 years now so I know how much things cost. Yerevan will normally cost 300,000 Amd just for food and transportation.Prices on Numbeo are a joke.Armenia isn't as cheap as people think it is.

Is 103250Amd sufficient to live per month in Armenia for a student who has paid rent and fees.

Yes I see the difference in cost of living verses monthly net salary.But why would anyone want to live in Armenia in the first place?
Anonymous on May 01, 2019:
So the monthly living costs for a single person is 208,868 AMD yet the Average Monthly Net Salary (After Tax) is 154,884 AMD. Anyone else see the problem here?

@GAMINI, Ankara-Yerevan by train?are you aware of the fact that the border between Turkey and Armenia has been closed for hundred years? You cannot travel overland between the 2 countries. You need to travel from Turkey to Georgia,then into Armenia. And no trains between T.key and Georgia .. bus,car or plane!
Gamini on May 26, 2018:
Hello I am looking to travel Armenia this August.I want to travel in train to Ankara from it easy and comfortable??

About Yerevan for last 4 years I can say only good. The capital is developing and blossoming. And prices become more affordable. For resting in Yerevan you need to prepare money for hotel, car rent, petrol, food (restaurants,cafes) , entertaining, a bit of additional expenses. Overall you don't need a huge amount of money to have a great rest in this sunny country. I am travelling to Armenia for over 6 years already. From my experience I advise ALWAYS to rent an SUV in Armenia, though you are in Yerevan If someone needs a help or some guidance I'll be happy to help.

My son just moved to Yerevan (Nov. 2017). His rent for a 2 bedroom apartment is $150 usd a month, but he's getting a very good deal with a family over there. He just got a job teaching English to Russian and Armenian speakers but I don't know how much he will be earning. He hopes to stay around a year or so.
