Create an itinerary including Republic Square
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.

  • Lively place. We visited Yerevan during the annual water festival and Republic Square is the place where it all happens 😀 If you don't like to be drenched by the joyful crowed, I wouldn't recommend you to visit this place during the water festival. It is located in the heart of the city and many great restaurants are located nearby. It is well lit during night time making it a nice place ro take a photo
  • What a beautiful place especially at night! Soild architecture and buildings, the singing fountains just wow. Yerevan is beautiful! Would like to come back again
  • Beautiful center of historic Yerevan. Singing fountains every evening, great soundtrack. Peaceful and insightful place full of energy of Armenia
  • Beautiful square in the very bosom of the city. It's pretty wide, so it's barely possible to put all the buildings in one photo
  • Lovely spot for taking pictures and comparing different tour options offered by vans next to sidewalks. The fountain and the big clock in here makes it very lovely to take fantastic/touristic shots.
