Freedom Square, Yerevan

4.2
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. Work out when and for how long to visit Freedom Square and other Yerevan attractions using our handy Yerevan trip planner.

  • Not too much to do here, and the design of the area is also not very impressive. The Opera building is nice but not more than that.  more »

  • One of the most historical places in Yerevan. You can statue by Auguste Rodin in the center of the square. Be careful :))
  • It's a nice place to stay. From this point you can get transport to go lake Sevan, and many other places. It is important to arrive in advance in order to have good deals and find other travellers willing to visit these places.
  • Beautiful attraction in the centre of the city. Walking distance to many monuments and major hotels. Great spot to enjoy a stroll and coffee while basking in the lovely Yerevan sunshine.
  • We are waiting for the next few weeks to get the square new image.because we have a new project in the yerevan city.must be city and green pleases repeating new images capital of yerevan.its new politics in ARMENIA .
  • The semi-circular square is known for its prominent role in modern history of Armenia. Since the Karabakh movement in February 1988, the Freedom Square has become a center of popular demonstrations. To suppress the demonstrations the square was closed down several times within 1988 by Soviet police and military forces
