Armenia's capital turns 2795 today - endless words of love by famous
and loved people

13:40 - 12.10.13

Armenia's capital ,Yerevan, traditionally celebrates its anniversary
(Erebuni-Yerevan) on a Saturday at the beginning of October.

Today, the capital city turns 2795.

On this remarkable occasion, Tert.am has talked to well-known and
loved residents of Yerevan.

`Yerevan is my birthplace. The sweetest memories of my childhood and
youth are linked to Yerevan,' said actor Vardan Petrosyan. `My bitter
memories too, are linked to Yerevan. But at my age today, I remember
them with pleasure because the troubles of youth also seem sweet to a
human being. And besides, my youth period was very active; I lived in
Yerevan at a time when everything was full of life. I remember so well
that everything in our life was so colorful; even the deprivations
were colorful, a kind of red, pink and light blue... Perhaps we were
young and in love with one another ... I had a strong feeling of
attachment, and you know, I wasn't the only one. If you ask people of
my generation who have lived in Yerevan, well we couldn't be away from
Yerevan for a long period. We would go to the seaside, but couldn
hardly resist a 25-day absence. We would return with haste. There was
something magic about this city.'

`The founder of Yerevan - I don't mean [King] Argishti whom I do not
even know - were [architect Alexander] Tamanyan, [prominent linguist
Hrachya] Acharyan. Later came [sculptor Yervand] Kochar, and also
[artist Martiros] Saryan. They managed to create an extremely powerful
center. Their spirit was probably wandering about Yerevan

`Yerevan later saw those very bitter days. I left Yerevan, to be
frank, with very bitter feelings, but I never lost my connections with
Yerevan. And my departure became an endless return, a confession of an
endless sin, and an endless love.

Jazz musician Levon Malkhasyan, whom Tert.am contacted for comments
months ago, expressed the following feelings and ideas about the
capital city:

`I have almost never been absent from the city throughout my life. I
treat Yerevan the way as I would treat a child. Both the shortcoming
and the achievements of Yerevan are mine. The biggest shortcoming I
see in Yerevan today is emigration. That emigration affects me very

Gagik Ginosyan, the art director of the national ethnographic ensemble
Karin, shared the following impressions with Tert.am:

`I wasn't born in Yerevan, but when I was two my parents brought me
here to participate the celebration of Yerevan's 2750th anniversary.
My first entrance to Yerevan was very festive. It was the first and
biggest jubilee since the discovery of the traces of Erebuni.

`Now that I have lived in Yerevan twice as much as in my birthplace, I
would like us, the Yerevan residents, to live in such a way that would
make Yerevan the capital of all Armenians a place where every Armenian
would make himself or herself at home, no matter where they come from.
And they would feel as the citizens of the state whose main pulse is
