Nubarashen (Armenian: Նուբարաշեն), is one of the 12 districts of Yerevan, the capital of Armenia. It is situated at the 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.
In 1930, with the support and sponsorship of founder-president of the AGBU; the Egyptian-Armenian benefactor Boghos Nubar, a new town named Sovetashen was designed to be founded at the southeastern outskirts of Yerevan. The settlement was planned and designed by architect Alexander Tamanyan.
With the gradual growth of Yerevan, Nubarashen was eventually absorbed by the capital city.
The district is home to the Nubarashen poultry farm, the Nubarashen pig farm and the Nubarashen shoes factory.
