Yerevan, Armenia

Change came to the linguistic landscape after 1990. Change 1: Lenin Ave. renamed Mashtots Ave. Change 2: Mashtots selected to honor the Armenian alphabet which he invented. Change 3: English and the Roman alphabet replaced Russian and the Cyrillic alphabet. No change: Alexander Pushkin, father of Russian literature, retained his place of honor. [2015]
