Armenia is subdivided into eleven administrative divisions. Of these, ten are provinces, known as marzer (մարզեր) or in the singular form marz (մարզ) in Armenian.

Yerevan is treated separately and granted special administrative status as the country's capital. The chief executive in each of 10 marzer is the marzpet, appointed by the government of Armenia. In Yerevan, the chief executive is the mayor, appointed by the president.

Communities (hamaynkner)

Within each province are communities (hamaynkner, singular hamaynk). Each community is self-governing and consists of one or more settlements (bnakavayrer, singular bnakavayr). Settlements are classified as either towns (kaghakner, singular kaghak) or villages (gyugher, singular gyugh). As of June 2017, Armenia is divided into 795 communities, of which 48 are considered urban and 747 are considered rural. The capital, Yerevan, also holds the status of a community.[3] Additionally, Yerevan is divided into twelve semi-autonomous districts.
