Republic Square, Yerevan

Landmark Tourist Spot
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.

  • Best time to visit the republic square is during the evenings, after 8pm. The musical fountain is a spectacular evening scene that's not to be missed
  • Yerevan's main public square. The best time to go is between 9-11pm when there is a free water/light show in the fountain.
  • Make sure to have a visit at night. There is a fabulous musical fountain water dance.
  • The prettiest public square I've seen 👌🏻
  • A nice place to visit. At the evening its even more nicer with the lights at the buildings and when the fountains is dancing. A good place to see Yerevan.

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.
