In 1806, when Baku was annexed by the Russian Empire and the traditional architectural look of the Old City changed. Many European buildings were constructed during the 19th century and early 20th century, using styles such as Baroque and Gothic.

Is Armenia Safe For Foreigners? Are Attacks or Muggings Common?
Armenia is one of the safest countries in the world. Armenians have a very strong sense of honor and community. To do anything dishonorable would bring shame not only upon the individual, but also upon his or her family and friends, and these ties are often the foundation of a generally safe environment throughout the country.
Is Tap Water Safe to Drink in Armenia?
Armenia is blessed with abundant water, sourced from the impressive mountains throughout the land. As a result, there are fountains all over the country, called “pulpulaks.” Generally, you should feel free to drink from any “pulpulak” or tap: there is a water sanitation system in place that works well. Keep in mind that you’re in a different country: every place has different bacteria in food and water. If you have an upset stomach it does not necessarily mean that there is something wrong with what you’re eating or drinking, but rather your body could be adjusting to the local bacteria. If you don’t feel well, stop by a pharmacy and ask for something to settle your stomach. Don’t let it deter you from enjoying the food and drink of the country during the rest of your trip.
Do I Need Any Special Vaccinations to Travel?
There are no special vaccinations that are necessary to travel to Armenia. You should nevertheless go to your doctor before visiting Armenia to make sure you’re in good health and, if you have any issues, to make sure you come prepared.
Do People Generally Speak English?
You can expect people in Yerevan to speak some English, especially the youth. Young and old outside of Yerevan speak very little English, but in almost all places there are at least a few people who do. As with most things in Armenia, it’s best to ask around. If you want to say “English” in Armenian, say “angleren,” and locals might find someone they know who speaks English to translate.
Who Do I Tip in Armenia and How Much?
Tips used to be uncommon in Armenia, but are gaining acceptance. Still, not everyone expects tips and many people might think you overpaid or forgot your money if you try to leave a tip. Generally, you would tip your waiter at a restaurant or cafe if they provide good service. You can also tip doormen and bellhops at hotels. If your taxi drivers are good or drive a long distance, they can also be tipped, as well as bus drivers on tours you might take.
