Largest cities and towns of Armenia

The municipalities of Armenia are referred to as communities (համայնքներ hamaynkner, singular համայնք hamaynk ). The community in Armenia is the second-level division in the republic after the provinces. Each community is self-governing and consists of one or more settlements (bnakavayrer, singular bnakavayr). Settlements are classified as either towns (kaghakner, singular kaghak) or villages (gyugher, singular gyugh). As of 2007, Armenia includes 915 communities, of which 49 are considered urban and 866 are considered rural. The capital, Yerevan, also has the status of a community.[1]
