Republic Square, Yerevan

(4.7/5 based on 1,300+ reviews on the web)
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. Make Republic Square part of your personalized Yerevan itinerary using our Yerevan holiday planner.

  • It is a great place, especially in the evening! Beautiful buildings made of Armenian stone and lights! During warm season (may-October) they have fountains with music!  more »
  • 50 metres from having lived in it. But at the time of the arrival of the Pope. How many police officers until he left:) the area is very large, you can find tours. At night all lit and very beautiful.

  • This is a special view which was designed by architecture Alexander Tamanyan. There shouldn't be any building after the arc, to see the whole beauty of holy mount. Try to find the point and make unique photos
  • Nice open area surrounded by great architecture and giant clock. Best feature is the fountain. At night it's a showcase of light and colour along to music. Good atmosphere .
  • Beautiful, the everyday water show is a must see.
  • beautiful, old, and soviet. i would say make sure to visit this area, but if you're in yerevan, you have already driven past it. Take a stroll through it, have some dinner, see the fountain show. This place is yerevan.
  • Nothing special, another soviet style square. There are some nice places around though. A flee street market and some cafes
