  • The square is named to honor the famous Armenian chansonnier Charles Aznavour. On the square is a cinema in Moscow, with the signs of the Zodiac fountain, large chess and shapes from metal parts. The big holidays are here set the stage and go live concerts. On the day of the city of Yerevan 14.10.2017 was a concert of jazz music. It was interesting. Walking on the street. Abovyan toward Republic square, this place by pass

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.
