    The most beautiful republic square in the world! Heart of the city. I love it in the morning at 8 when watering cars are there. It looks like city is waiking up.

    Amazing place with a lively night show until midnight. The republic square in Yerevan has high class restaurants, the Marriott hotel, Government buildings and a museum with a water fountain show. The water fountain show was first of the kind in the whole Soviet Union founded in 1977, surprisingly it took them 51 years to complete the project. You must visit this landmark it is one of the most (if not the most) landmark in Yerevan especially because it is centered directly in the middle of the beautiful city. If you are going during 6:00-12:00 pm I would advise you to be extremely careful of your children and pickpockets since its heavily crowded.

    The best part of the city. This is real center of Yerevan with singing fountain (the show is starting usually at 9 PM, sometimes it can be postponed for half hour). There is a National gallery and historical museum (both in one building besides fountain). Also there are two hotels and governmental building (with clock one). On the empty part was Lenin statue in Soviet times

    Heraparak is interesting during the day but comes to life at sundown. Many of the City’s residents come to be entertained by the singing/dancing fountain show. Buildings surrounding the square are lit to highlight their architecture. Make sure to visit the National Gallery of Armenia while there.
