Landmark
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.

  • So beautiful! So much fun, I got a doughnut here and sat on one of the stairs! The view from here is stunning especially when you come on sunset, the pictures were taken on the same day, see how many kinds of skies you can see!!!
  • An amazing architectural marvel and art gallery at the same time. Got great views of Yerevan.

  • Nice and decently maintained. Shame it is not completed.
  • very nice place, even in winter although the green outside makes it probably more beautiful
