What Else Kanye West Did in Armenia?
While being in Armenia, Kanye West also managed to visit Tumo Center for Creative Technologies. He explored the center and its study projects closer. Kanye started his visit from music studio in Tumo center and listening to some of the young musicians’ works of this center.

Why Kanye West Visited Armenia Though?
The main aim of Kanye West’s visit to Armenia was directly connected with his wife Kim Kardashian. Kim Kardashian, a worldwide famous reality show celebrity, has Armenian descent. Her father’s, Robert Kardashian’s grandparents were Armenian immigrants.
They left Armenia and moved to US for escaping Armenian Genocide, as in 1915, 1.5 million Western Armenians were cruelly murdered by Ottoman Empire. Not many families could escape this mass murder.
Kardashians were one of them. 2015 was a special year for all Armenians, as it was the 100th anniversary of Armenian Genocide. So, Kim Kardashian, together with his husband Kanye West, daughter North and sister Khloe Kardashian, decided to take a tour to Armenia and be with her nation.
They have been in Armenia about a week and managed to visit some historical places of the country, walk in Yerevan and visit Tsitsernakaberd the memorial of Armenian Genocide.
Kim and Kanye West’s Short Tour Around Armenia
The first thing Kim and Kanye did was visiting Gyumri, the second largest city of Armenia. The reason of the visit was her roots, which comes exactly from Gyumri. They were welcomed there with the friendliest way. She visited her ancestral home. The house was built in a rather modest way, typical to traditional Armenian old houses.
Kim together with Kanye, North and Khloe visited Geghard, Armenian medieval monastery. The monastery is considered as one the most valuable cultural heritages of Armenia, which is listed in UNESCO World Heritage Site. The monastery was also called “Ayrivank”, which is translated as “the monastery of the crave”. It’s called so, because the part of the monastery is carved out of the mountain.
The visit of famous family boomed media. As always, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were at the center of attention of world media. So, the main topic of media was the visit of Kim and Kanye to Armenia and of course Kanye’s unique surprise concert.
The visit of Kardashians to Armenia was included in their reality show “Keeping up with the Kardashians”. So, their trip was likely to be a fascinating one both for themselves and their Armenian fans. Though the visit was mainly dedicated to the commemoration of Armenian genocide, there’ve been other quite a lot of memorable highlights of their visit.
