H. Toumanian was still a teenager when his father took him to a big city Tiflis to get education and become “a man.”
Though Tiflis was attractive in its lifestyle as a cultural crossroad of various nations, Toumanian’s first visit to Yerevan made him an unique impression; the city where he would be eager to be in the last days of his life, already from Moscow.
The visits were not frequently, and in part, he was there on business, but even during that time he managed to enjoy the wonderful view of the mountain Ararat from Yerevan.
