Republic Square, Yerevan

4.7
Constructed in a stone pattern similar to a traditional Armenian rug, Republic Square attracts swarms of tourists and locals during some of the city's most prominent concerts, venues, and ceremonies. Intersected by main streets, the oval-shaped plaza lies surrounded by important pink and white stone buildings, such as the government house, the history museum, and several ministries. Where a statue of Soviet leader Vladimir Lenin once dominated the square, today musical fountains perform choreographed light shows followed by music. You can find rest and refreshments in many cafes and restaurants nearby. Work out when and for how long to visit Republic Square and other Yerevan attractions using our handy Yerevan road trip site .

  • The fountain in front of the square is the best piece. A large area covered with water gives a good scene. Must visit place.  more »
  • Great place to spend time during afternoon and evening. The dancing fountain is a must see and should not be missed.  more »
  • In the evening, it's not very crowded. All was hip come look at the fountain. Very noisy and alive. There are sightseeing vans with different suggestions

  • The Republic Square at the historic moment when velvet revolution declared victory. 25.04.2018 Since this is a place review, I would like to acknowledge how important is this place for Armenia. (have been and i hope will be)
  • I liked the atmosphere of this square and it’s nearby places very much! Try to visit it at the night when the musical fountains are playing.
  • Nice place - city center of Yerevan with good restaurants within walking distance. We visited on a Saturday so there was an outdoor market, unsure if it is a weekend market only or there on weekdays also, however some good deals for the taking, learnt quickly not to accept the price they first quote as there is a lot of room for discount bargains... the dancing fountains were not operational when we visited.
  • Amazing place with a lively night show until midnight. The republic square in Yerevan has high class restaurants, the Marriott hotel, Government buildings and a museum with a water fountain show. The water fountain show was first of the kind in the whole Soviet Union founded in 1977, surprisingly it took them 51 years to complete the project. You must visit this landmark it is one of the most (if not the most) landmark in Yerevan especially because it is centered directly in the middle of the beautiful city. If you are going during 6:00-12:00 pm I would advise you to be extremely careful of your children and pickpockets since its heavily crowded.
  • The important square in Yerevan. And the main one. You can go every place from there easily.
