A Visit to the Northern Bus Station

The Northern Bus Station, located on the outskirts of Yerevan towards Abovyan, is a masterpiece of regional modernism designed by Armen Aghalyan and Vardan Avetisyan. Despite its damaged roof and half-empty state, this 1988 architectural gem continues to attract architecture and photography enthusiasts. Discover its unique blend of historical and modern design.

The Northern Bus Station is located on the outskirts of Yerevan, towards Abovyan. Minivans depart from here to Sevan, Dilijan, Ijevan, and Noyemberyan. Tickets are sold at the station's ticket office.


The station was designed by Armenian architects Armen Aghalyan and Vardan Avetisyan in the style of regional modernism. It opened in 1988, but the subsequent earthquake, the collapse of the Soviet Union, and the war in Karabakh diminished the building's charm and importance.

The facade of the building


Today, despite the damaged roof, which leaks water, and the half-empty building, it still attracts those interested in architecture and photography.


The façade features a prominent tower that immediately catches the eye and has become a characteristic feature of the building, reminiscent of ancient Armenian fortresses. This is a beautiful example of combining historical architecture with modernism.


I fell in love with the interior design

The most beautiful part of the building is, of course, the interior. Large windows allow natural light to flood in, giving the building a modern design. The well-designed stairs add extra charm to the structure.
