Yerevan Cascade, Yerevan

4.7
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.

    Populous, but good for exploring the park with interesting sculptures and cascade showrooms with stunning views of the city from the upper tiers.

    What from a distance seems just a bad poured concrete, is also an Art Gallery open to the sky, a place for art exhibitions, view point, area of meetings and monument to megalomania. Anyway to see and experience, especially on days of good weather. For fans of fountains, nostalgic for Soviet architecture and lovers of stairs and scalemobili.

    This was supposed to be part of a giant staircase that went up the entire hill, but was never completed. After a series of recent renovations, it is now a giant staircase to nowhere that happens to be a great place to hang out and enjoy the views of the city. It is very popular at night with the locals.

    A suitable place for watching the dawn. I hope the construction of the remaining parts gets finished in the near future.

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.
