Yerevan Cascade, Yerevan

4.6
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.

  • Beautiful during the day; even more so at night! Its à long climb up but worth it for thé views. Must do.  more »
  • Take a walk, take pictures, drink coffee, on the escalator climb to the top of the cascade and then walk down the stairs-all wonderful!

  • Highly recommend for anyone who rides in Yerevan-probably the first thing that is worth a visit, photo did not convey the beauty of the place, at the bottom of the square, with amusing statues, for those who like me bummer to the left of the cascade, you can go to the door, there will be an escalator

  • The best part of Armenia. You can see Yerevan clearly. Every part of it. It's beautiful. And of course the mountain Ararat. My love 😂 except I can't see something beautiful in fat naked bodies, blue kiwis, rabbits trying to recreate Nazi symbol. But when you look at it otherwise it's kind of cool. I still love Cascade and it's still one of must be places in Yerevan.
  • The park in front of the cascade was just georgeous. With many arts from recycled things. We were there in a deep winter days. The roads was full of snow. also the cascade complex. It was just grey and cloudy and foggy. I just climb half way on the cascade to see the view of the city. But failed to do so because of the fog.
  • Good place to hang around until late night. Good for all ages. Many restaurants around too.
  • A very Lovely place to spent the night or day for the sunrise & sunset views... A 1000 steps walk stretch along the hillside valley of the Capital Yerevan Armenia...!!! A good place to spent the time with friends & families, as it offers recreations, restaurants & bars across the area...!!!
  • A great architectural building. Visiting this place during late spring or early summer are the best times. The fountains are really nice, as are the sculptures and statues. The art inside is also decent. The escalators are efficient and clean. Everything inside is also clean. A very nice place.
