In 1995, Armenia re-organized into the current ten provinces and one city.
Prior to 1995, Armenia consisted of 37 shrjanner (regions/districts).
Under the Soviet Union, Armenia was the Armenian Soviet Socialist Republic (Armyanskaya Sovyetskaya Sotsialisticheskaya Respublika). According to the Atlas of Armenia, as of 1 January 1991, Armenia was divided into 37 raions.
