With its origins in 8th century BC, Yerevan is one of the oldest continually inhabited cities in the world. With the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991, Yerevan became the capital of the newly independent Republic of Armenia. Yerevan continues to be a leading industrial, educational, cultural, and scientific center in the Caucasus region. As a center of Armenian culture, Yerevan is the site of Yerevan State University, the Armenian Academy of Sciences, the Matenadaran manuscript archives, a historical museum, an opera house, and a music conservatory.
