These maps included touristic sights of the centre of the capital: historical and cultural monuments, museums, including the Memorial of the Armenian Genocide, galleries, churches, parks, the Yerevan Zoo, resorts etc.
Metro stations, bicycle stops are also marked on the map to help in getting oriented in the centre of the capital. Useful information, 12 must-visit sights and other recommendations for tourists are presented in a separate column. In 2018, within the frames of “Yerevan 2800” events, the tourism division initiated and implemented publication of touristic maps in many languages – Armenian, Russian, English, French, German and Farsi.
Taking into account increasing flows of tourists to the capital, the maps have become more diverse in languages and content. In 2019 the division issued updated maps in a new design and updated information in many languages (Armenian, English, French, German, Farsi).
A new thematic map was issued with the use of digital technologies.

The map is of a nice design and contains easily orienting navigation: places of interest are presented to tourists in a special way: with trees, walking people, musicians playing their instruments, artists and taxis, which makes it possible to imagine the area much better.
At the reverse side of the map tourists can familiarize themselves with the most attractive touristic destinations of Armenia and Artsakh.
