Freedom Square, Yerevan

4.4
#39 of 175 in Things to do in Yerevan
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.

    A wonderful, fun, whimsical, beautiful place in the center of Yerevan. Visited on a summer Friday and people were everywhere enjoying the sights, sounds and activities.  more »

    This place enjoyed mostly our 3 years old daughter. She drove a little car, jumped on trampoline and played also other attractions. We could also enjoy coffee and cognac in adjacent café places  more »

    Salaries with small terraces on this square, which is more of a park than a square. On a beautiful summer evening (and there you have a lot of it in Yerevan) is your very very pleasant.

    Great square, lovely cafes and atmosphere around and lots of kids riding bikes and toy bars bring spirit to the square, plus the nice statues and opera add to the look. However the area could be really improved if the cement was changed into tile, added some bushes, benches, trash cans and nice street lights down the square from the entrances into the square to the opera, and made the vendors renting out bikes and running carnival games at the edges of the square more organized to make the area look nicer. Basically great place that can be even better.

    A great spot for people watching. Seemingly half of Armenia hangs out here on summer evenings.

[English] 👍 : It's a nice place where you can grab a bite to eat and sit down or walk around the opera. For kids there are there toy cars and bikes they can ride for a small price.

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.
