Step into a realm frozen in time, untouched by the passage of four decades. Where swirling dust dances amidst the remnants of machinery, its tendrils entwined with wires suspended in mid-air. In an era when allegiance to the government was the norm, a daring entrepreneur charted his own course, embracing absolute autonomy. This bold defiance, however, proved to be his downfall. The once thriving textile factory now lies deserted. A relic of bygone glory, abandoned for nearly four decades.

Abandoned factories in Armenia can be found in various regions. Some are located in the capital city of Yerevan and others scattered throughout the countryside. These abandoned industrial sites often stand as silent witnesses to the economic transitions and challenges the country has faced over the years. While some abandoned factories have been left to decay, others have been repurposed or renovated for different purposes such as housing, commercial spaces, or cultural centers. In addition, government and private investors have made efforts to revitalize certain industrial areas as part of economic development initiatives.
