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 area is good, that is built in the same style. Solid, pompous buildings of red and white Tuff make it quite majestic. Looks wonderful with evening lighting. Add to the attractiveness of this place color-musical fountains. I got in the evening, when the music of Tchaikovsky. The next day it became known about the death of Charles Azanvura, and the whole evening fountains worked under his songs. Inexpressible sensation!

  • Designed by Alexandre Tamanian in the 1920-30 years a beautiful harmony emerges from this huge and beautiful place, the heart of the city. "Hrabarag" as it is called in Armenian.

  • Leaving the restaurant we were a bit enchanted in front of the water of the fountains dance to the sound of music. Nice. Many people enjoy the spectacle and the coolness of the water

  • If you live anywhere near here, you ought to be here when the sun sets, cause the fountains and lights just light this place up. With a museum towards the rear, this place is home to the most relaxing experience you could ever have in Yerevan. Long story short, you can find some of the best hotels of the city in vicinity and there's a light and sound show that's not to be missed. Straightaway recommend this place !
  • The heart of the city. During the day, you can enjoy watching the buildings and the unique architecture. At nights you can see the dancing and singing fountains, consist of 2750 little fountains, which have been presented to Yerevan for its 2750s anniversary, like the birthday candles. So colorful.
  • 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)
  • هي سنتر المدينه انصح بالزيارة بالقرب منها السوق شارع معروف باسم شارع الماركات سوق رائع جدا وفي نهايته يوجد كافيهات وبحيرة صناعية صغيرة وهناك ايضا سوق ثاني اسمه Hand made للصناعات اليدوية طبعا البنايه الظاهرة بالصورة هي مركز المحافظة
  • May 28th celebrations. Awesome but the music was hard to see. Great fireworks at the end. Must see and the post office is there also. Treacherous to walk across the streets. Playing chicken even though the pedestrians have the right of way.
