The underground parking lot near the Opera House will remain open. This is what head of the Kentron Administrative District of Yerevan Victor Mnatsakanyan declared on 15 March.
According to the district head, the municipal authorities intend to raise the price of parking spaces in central Yerevan. “Central Yerevan is not designed for cars. Central Yerevan has to be designed for citizens, passengers. I am now announcing about the rise of parking fees in central Yerevan,” Victor Mnatsakanyan said during an interview with RFE/RL.
