List of cities and towns in Armenia

Map of the cities in Armenia

This is a list of cities and towns in Armenia ordered by population.

In Armenia, a city/town (Armenian: քաղաք k'aghak' ) is not defined by the size of its population. However, the cities of Yerevan, Gyumri, and Vanadzor, having populations of more than 100,000, were considered as "major cities of republican subordination" (Armenian: հանրապետական ենթակայության խոշոր քաղաքներ) during the Soviet period. The rest of the towns are of a population of less than 100,000.
