Saint Hripsime Church (Armenian: Սուրբ Հռիփսիմե եկեղեցի, Surp Hripsime Yekeghetsi), is a working Armenian church located in Yalta on the Crimean peninsula and completed in 1917.[1]

It is modeled after a church of the same name[2] in Vagharshapat, Armenia. In fact, a piece of that UNESCO World Heritage site church was symbolically used in the base of this church.[3]
