Also, not mentioning constant water, electricity, gas cut offs that happen almost every week. And that’s in a country’s capital!

Yerevan is unjustifiably expensive! The basic costs for a single person (without rent) are around $800-900. Groceries are expensive, restaurants are expensive (on average 10,000 AMD per breakfast for two people), any activity you want to do (gym, yoga, swimming pool, etc.) is expensive. And I'm not even going to mention the rent, which is just too overpriced and with crappy furniture.
I honestly can't wrap my head around the prices here, not sure how locals are surviving!

Yerevan is very much more expensive than 12 months ago. Not sure how the locals survive.

Currently I spend with my wife around 250k amd for living + 230k amd rent for 2 bedroom apps. And this is basic living with a little of fun at the weekend (like pizza with friends and some beer). Clothes, any tech stuff etc - it's all out of that "basic" I mentioned

these figures on rent don't seem to be accurate from what i have seen when i search online so i am assuming most of this is inaccurate. i like that internet seems about a third cheaper in Armenia than the United States though. I am seeing $150-$300 places to stay that would compare to the poorly priced houses around detroit greater area despite being surrounded by forsaken space

Crazy country to live in if you are working here
Your salary even wouldn't be sufficient to pay the rent of a normal studio
Stay away from Yerevan if you think you can work and live like a local it's a trap when you see the lower prices, the the minimum wage of 150$ A MONTH!

It's not the freezer. It just has the pronounced winter. And also, cold there feels not that cold because of low humidity and slow wind.

Who would want to live in a freezer like Armenia? Hookers are dirt cheap though an added bonus.

Apartments are now much more expensive, I would say 1000$ for 2 bedroom in the city center.

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.
