Freedom Square, Yerevan

(60 reviews on the web)
Landmark
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.
