    At night this place roars with activities (weekend), but during the day it's occupied with flowing traffic with a massive roundabout!  more »

    Beautiful square, not very big but was overlooked by a movie theater, a beautiful Fountain, some contemporary art sculptures and a restaurant famous Italian (Rossini) and a hotel equally renowned. In summer it is very busy and crowded, the scene of one of the events of the Golden Apricot (the Golden apricot), a renowned music festival in Armenia and abroad due to the presence of artists coming from all over. To see!

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.
