The "Barekamutyun Underground Crossing" in Yerevan has turned over time into a shopping place. I come here often, as I enjoy watching people trade...

The Barekamutyun underground crossing is not the only crossing in Yerevan that has over time turned into a shopping place. This is not similar to high-class malls or shops, and everything you'll see here is a bit different. Food, clothing, cosmetics, electronics, phones, accessories and much, much more is sold here, right next to each other. I go to this place very often, as the way to metro lies through it and I really enjoy watching people trade. You can also find Armenian souvenirs here for much cheaper than in other tourist-oriented shops. The only thing is that you will hardly find someone who speaks good English, but they'll know the basics and gestures which is totally enough for a trade. 

Also, there are many shops for phone accessories and I buy them from here a lot, as it's much cheaper than in other stores. If you are fond of those accessories too and if you want to take something Armenian with you, there are lots of accessories with Armenian symbols, etc. 

For me, these type of crossings are the opposite side of the luxury malls, luxury cars and many more which can often be seen in the city. It's the other side of the people, and the other side of the culture.
