Here we go, as there are nearly no pictures from Yerevan here, I'll quote some pictures from this thread:

[QUOTE=charlottesville;60913373]As georgian i have to say that baku is really beautiful city ... but tbilisi is more of historic architecture than baku, some people might prefer modern architecture than historic architecture, but both cities are great


Sorry Buddy I know Tbilisi and Baku quite well...in terms of historic architecture only Walled City of Baku can beat whole historic buildings in Tbilisi...And this is not only complex of historic buildings in Baku..Oil boom era buildings are also attractive..It is reality that modern architecture is more developed in Baku than in Tbilisi, but both cities are doing well nowadays

Tbilisi is nice but Baku is surely best. I also like from Caucasian cities - Batumi and Gabala, despite both are not capitals

Looks very interesting
never been there so I cant give my opinion
To be honest I dont know a lot aobut the countries there...
but as I see on the images it seems there isnt a big Mid-Class over there.. A large gap between rich and poor?
Just wondering, it looks very interesting though, I should visit it!

Baku is modern and rich but Tblisi definitely most beautiful in Caucasus judging by pictures.
