Swan Lake, Yerevan

3.2
#5 of 14 in Parks in Yerevan
Admire Swan Lake, a knee-deep man-made pool of water in Freedom Square. The spot is famous for the region's summer festival and the open-air cinema. In wintertime the water is frozen and serves as an ice rink. The pool is named after a couple of white and black swans which made it their home. There is a high-end pedestrian shopping area and a good selection of cafes around it. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Yerevan holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Swan Lake and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • It's an artificial small lake, frozen when we were there in Christmas, still beautiful. You can sit on a bench around it and watch people doing ice-skating. It's a very good spot for resting a little ...  more »
  • Were in January. Therefore, the Lake turned into a skating rink. And in the afternoon, especially in the evening full of wanting to go. There are skates, but large queues. Great evening lights and relaxing music.

  • After walking 4-5 hours in the city you better stop here, sit on the grass and enjoy the graceful dance of the swans.((= By the way, the little lake is surrounded by 100s of cafes.  more »

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.
