  • The central square of the Gyumri-Vardanants square was designed by Alexander Tamanian plan, after the earthquake in 30-ies of the twentieth century. Pre-revolutionary buildings reached us surb Astvatsatsin (Whit Werk-seven wounds) and surb amenaprkich (Saviour). In Soviet times, it was called the may uprising square, later an area of liberty, and she recently changed in size Vardanants. In the center of the square, you can see the "Monument of the Armenian Kings"-sculpture, installed in memory of the famous Commander of the V centenary of the Youth Mamikonjane and his companions instead first.
