Yerevan is beautiful during all seasons, definitely, spring in Yerevan is unique when nature awakens, people's hearts and souls are filled with warmth and anticipation, when apricots and cherries, acacias and wild cherries blossoms fill the air with aroma and create the unique landscape of our capital: It is not a coincidence that spring in Yerevan has become a source of inspiration for creators and many songs have been dedicated to the city, and many paintings have been born ... And it is in the spring season that many wonderful festivals, fairs, and events take place since April. The 7th of April is a favorite holiday of Motherhood and Beauty. Within the Armenian Apostolic Church calendar, it’s the Feast of the Annunciation. A liturgy is served as a day of blessing for women who are waiting for the joy of motherhood.

According to the established tradition, on the eve of this symbolic day, all the fountains of the capital are reopened as a unique gift to the women and girls of the capital in April. The fountains, which have become the water symbols of Yerevan with their unique architectural solutions and structure, bring freshness and coolness to the capital of Armenia. The history of water structures that always give a fresh breath to the unique environment of Yerevan dates back to the 18th century. Evidence shows that there have been fountains and pools in the capital since the 1800s. The first large fountain was in Yerevan Fortress. Today there are 22 fountains and 8 swimming pools in the capital. The main fountain of the Republic Square continues to attract a large number of tourists.

April will be full of both cultural and spiritual holidays in the capital, tourists visiting Yerevan within this month can find events that suit their preferences.

The next wonderful holiday is Tsaghkazard, (Palm Sunday is a Christian moveable feast that falls on the Sunday before Easter. Palm Sunday marks the first day of Holy Week.) which will be celebrated on April 10 this year. This year, on April 17, tourists visiting Yerevan will have the opportunity to take part in the most important Christian holiday in our country, Easter or the miraculous Resurrection of Jesus Christ, according to the unique Armenian traditions and customs. Easter is preceded by the forty-day period of Lent, which is considered the preparation for the celebration. Only plant-based foods are used during Lent. On the day of the holiday, according to tradition, eggs are painted red, symbolizing the blood of Christ. On the holiday table, there is Armenian Pilaf with Raisins and Almonds, a traditional Easter cake, fish, and wine.

April … month to live … for many Armenians, this is the meaning of the month of April. On Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day, all Armenians visit the Tsitsernakaberd Memorial on April 24 to commemorate the 1.5 million Armenians who fell victim to the atrocities committed by the Turkish government, turning the first genocide of the 20th century into a unique place of pilgrimage.
