Nubarashen (Armenian: Նուբարաշեն) or Nuparashen, is a district of Yerevan, the capital of Armenia. It is situated at southeastern part of the city. With a population of 9,700, Nubarashen is the least populous district in Yerevan. It is bordered by Shengavit and Erebuni districts from the north and Ararat Province from the east, west and south. Nubarashen was formerly known as Sovetashen.
With the support and sponsorship of the founder and president of the AGBU, Egyptian-Armenian benefactor Boghos Nubar, it was decided to build a new town near Yerevan in 1930 bearing the name of Nubarashen (meaning "village of Nubar"). The settlement was planned and designed by architect Alexander Tamanyan.
With the gradual growth of Yerevan, Nubarashen was eventually absorbed by the Armenian capital.
