Swan Lake, Yerevan

3.1
#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.

    the city is made pretty for a while all the different parks, ponds, statues etc that embellish and take the dullness of former Soviet cities

    It is something you will walk by when you are in Yerevan but offers nothing exciting to tourists. It might be more interesting in winter when there is ice skating although it is very packed and small.  more »

    Lived not far from the Opera House, Walked to the Lake. Very cute. We were in the morning on a weekday. People very little. Probably on weekends or in the evening there is not overcrowded. Perhaps even the impression it would be ruined. But we were lucky. Calmly walked, sat on a bench, looked at the Black Swans.

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.
