One of the beautiful and favorite parts for young families in the summer is the Children’s Railway of Yerevan. You can find it by going through the pedestrian underpass which starts under Martitos Saryan avenue and gets to the Hrazdan canyon.

The Children’s Railway was once one of multiple similar miniature-yet-fully-functioning railroads which spotted cities across the former Soviet Union and Eastern Block. Sadly, it is now one of the few remaining such attractions.

The railway system includes 3 miniature train stations, each of which an architectural wonder itself. Tickets usually cost less than a dollar, while trains depart on the single 2km-long track every 15 or so minutes (depending on how full it is).

Though the railway is primarily intended for families with children, everyone is welcome. It’s just a remarkable thing to try while you’re visiting Armenia.

Afterward, you can always picnic on the wooded slopes leading into the river.
