Freedom Square, Yerevan

(4.5/5 based on 55 reviews on the web)
Walk through the historic Freedom Square, once the main square for public rallies in Armenia’s capital just outside Yerevan Opera House. Now a high-end pedestrian shopping area, the square features a pond and serves as a great spot for people-watching, especially in the nearby park. Examine the square's interesting greenery, try a grass-covered piano, a saxophone, or a giant guitar, and admire the cheerful bronze sculpture of two famous Armenian composers. Centered on a pond that becomes an ice rink in winter time, the square features many cafes and shops, as well as a large parking lot below.

  • Freedom Square is a great spot to visit during winter time. I am amazed to see decors using ice and the whole place is covered heavily with snow. 
  • In the winter, in the evening, the area looks much more interesting than during the day. In the afternoon, as grey and dull, but in the evening, here all the lights. Think of any tourist, this place is a must to visit:)

  • you should visit this place if you are in Yerevan only for one day. if you have chance you can enjoy live concert also.
  • Great place to visit in Yerevan. Concerts happen here, kids ride bicycles, skates, etc... there are also nice bars and little restaurants around Freedom Square too.
  • Very nice square with interesting monuments and architecture. Nice cafes and restaurants around to enjoy the view.
  • I like this place. It's so beautiful in night.
  • An open space with lots of people around. The name says it all.
