Yerevan Cascade, Yerevan

(4.7/5 based on 1,500+ reviews on the web)
Explore a lavishly decorated stairway-building and a museum of art hidden inside the walls at Yerevan Cascade. The 118 m (387 ft) tall landmark embodies the transition from the Soviet era to democracy: partially completed before the devastating earthquake and breakup of the USSR, the complex was finalized in 2002, marking the country's economic revitalization and opening of cultural borders. As you approach the monumental site, observe the designed fountains, courtyards, and sculptures located on terraces and platforms. The interior contains an intricate network of halls and corridors--all connected to the outdoors via series of escalators. When you reach the top of the stairway, enjoy a panoramic view of the city center and Mount Ararat. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Yerevan holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Yerevan Cascade and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Overlooking the Erevan city was spectacular. Of heard lift is a failure? Went up to the top on its own, utterly in October 2016. Then there are a number of steps to climb off is filled with satisfaction. Lol Sun us and street lights are Dim feet also look after dark because it is only a couple around the hard Let's return early.

  • This is park in the downtown of Yerevan. And here you can find a lot of statues from all over the world. 
  • The best place that you can stay there and enjoy the nature and arts surrounded by nice cafes and ppl from all over enjoying each metre of art.

  • It's a great, artistic area full of history, with a view of Mt. Ararat on a clear day. The vendors are a bit pushy compared to other places, though.
  • a very unique memorial, consisting mainly of a very high staircase. Starting near the intersection near Opera, this staircase delivers you to the memorial commermorating the 50th anniversary of the Soviet Union. From there, it's a short walk to Mother Armenia herself. The walk itself is difficult, but very doable. There are lots of places to rest, and locals like to come here to sit, drink, be romantic, and sightsee. A great place at night. Be sure to treat the many art installations with respect: the guards are very strict about touching the art.
  • Very good complex. Each level has some exhibits and their a nice garden at the buttom with interesting statues.
  • Lovely and interesting place. On each floor you have some fountains where you can seat and relax and see the best view. Reccomend to visit this place especially
  • Looks like a French Quarter in Paris or Philadelphia. A lot of upline bars and perfectly designed cafeterias. Beautiful at night-time.
