Charles Aznavour Square, Yerevan

4.7
Experience street life in a scenic setting at Charles Aznavour Square, a cozy and charming downtown plaza named after a famous French-Armenian singer. Designed in 1924, the square today hosts many cafes, sculptures, and open-air events. Check out the fountain with zodiac sign, or grab a bite from one of the various vendors selling snacks. Impressive hotels and theaters line the plaza's semi-circular shape. Play chess on a giant chess board spanning 30 sq m (323 sq ft) or take a stroll. This place serves as a typical spot for concerts and youth gatherings. Charles Aznavour Square is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Yerevan Edition.

Where to stay in Yerevan

When it comes to accommodations in Yerevan, you'll find a number and a range befitting its status as the capital and most populous city in the country. Look in the Kentron (center) district, where by far the greatest number and best quality hotels can be found. Hotels in old Soviet blocks, grand former administrative buildings, or newly built high-rises offer standard to luxury rooms, along with a set of smaller hostels. With prices notoriously high for the region (and many visitors using Yerevan as a base from which to see the country), consider renting an apartment if staying for a longer period.
