The craftsmen, among them stone-cutters, blacksmiths, goldsmiths and carpenters carefully preserve the skills they have inherited from their grandpas and those that preceded them.
With its lofty black-and-apricot architecture, pottery studios and cute cafes, Armenia’s second-largest city, Gyumri, is the country’s creative capital and historical hub.
It used to be known as the most beautiful city in Armenia. Then, in 1988, Gyumri was almost wiped off the map by the devastating Spitak Earthquake, which claimed an estimated 25,000-50,000 lives and flattened most of Gyumri’s heritage buildings.
Gyumri is the city of masters
Modern Gyumri’s architecture has been inspired by the structural styles of the Alexandrapol and Leninakan eras. Modern architectural buildings stand out with their simplicity and mix of western and local designs. Yellow stoned buildings came to replace the red and black tufa and added a new color to the views of the city.
