As a female, Yerevan is one of the safest cities I’ve been too and felt comfortable walking by myself at night!

To "Richard". Give your full name then if you are not just a lier. Car robbing is practically IMPOSSIBLE in Yerevan. Don't be shy, maybe your 22 cars were robbed and you declare only 2. Lier!!

#Joyce I am so glad you liked here. Really it's unfortunate you cannot come during this time. However, if you have the chance to visit Armenia again, I would really like to meet you:))

So I have been visiting Armenia over the past 3 years in summer. I never had heard of the place (unfortunately) until I saw a group of Armenians around the House of Commons on 24th of April. I did a lot of research and fell in love with the culture of Armenia. It is very sad that due to the covid19 I am unable to travel this July. So then, safety wise it is very safe, far more safer than anywhere I have ever been before. People are lovely, very friendly and helpful. I approached a house to ask for directions,the family was having coffee, boy they didn't let me leave without having a cup of coffee :) and of course their wonderful fruits that you can smell from miles. I didn't like getting around in the mini buses (like in Turkey) but taxis are very cheap and abundant, for a few pounds sterling you can get anywhere. The museums are a must see. Matenadaran is amazing and I believe there is a virtual option available now.
If you visit for the first time, the first 2 weeks of july are great because one has to eat to know what apricot really tastes like and the mulberries. It truly is an open air museum like the locals say.
To sum up, great people,fantastic gastronomy, very very safe beautiful.

Thank you Armenians for making me feel so welcome each time

Yerevan is so safe that you will see kids playing outside at 11 pm by themselves. #Martin who left a comment below is an Azerbaijani who never been in Yerevan and trying to make up stories that doesn't add up. Rape is non existence in Yerevan, because of cultural believes, Specially a man in the park. He has a better chance getting hit by lightning than getting rape.

This is my second time in Yerevan and I must say it is a very safe city, people are polite and helping. As a tourist you just keep it normal and you will be more than okay in Yerevan.

The comments below about Yerevan not being safe is pure nonsense.

A male friend of me was raped in the ass in a park in Yerevan. A gay man was approaching him in the park and said: You rich tourist have nice ass and asked do you have honey in the ass for me? He raped my friend John in the ass. One year later John had to live the rest of his life at a psychiatric hospital. Sad story, John was so happy about visiting Armenia as a tourist but ended up raped in the ass and later as a psychiatric client. I have heard that gay ass rape occur in Yerevan,be careful in the Kanaker-Zeytun district.
