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 9,561 (2011 census), Nubarashen is the least populous district of Yerevan. It is bordered by Shengavit and Erebuni districts from the north and Ararat Province from the east, south and west.[1] 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.

In 1932, the construction of Nubarashen was completed. During the following years, the settlement became home to many repatriated Armenian families from Greece, Bulgaria, France, Lebanon and Syria.

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.
