    The best experience you can have here in the evenings. Singing fountains, good choice of armenian and international classic music, very crowded but interesting spot for travellers. This is the heart of the city, everything starts from here. Must visit spit for sure.

    It is more fascinating during night, like the dancing fountain in Dubai. People are gathering there and enriching experience of both locals and tourists.

    Of course would be silly to compare to squares in major world capitals. But nevertheless this square is the main square where Armenian independence and sovereignty were forged. Busy always with taxists, tourist companies and bureaucrats in the nearby parliament building. There is a great museum nearby and make sure to visit it. It’s cheap and interesting about Armenian history.

    If you live anywhere near here, you ought to be here when the sun sets, cause the fountains and lights just light this place up. With a museum towards the rear, this place is home to the most relaxing experience you could ever have in Yerevan. Long story short, you can find some of the best hotels of the city in vicinity and there's a light and sound show that's not to be missed. Straightaway recommend this place !

    The heart of the city. During the day, you can enjoy watching the buildings and the unique architecture. At nights you can see the dancing and singing fountains, consist of 2750 little fountains, which have been presented to Yerevan for its 2750s anniversary, like the birthday candles. So colorful.

    Place I really like. All generations gather here. In summer fountain sing, I'm not the biggest fan of this entertainment but it's decent.

    May 28th celebrations. Awesome but the music was hard to see. Great fireworks at the end. Must see and the post office is there also. Treacherous to walk across the streets. Playing chicken even though the pedestrians have the right of way.
