Yerevan Cascade

10 Tamanyan Street, Yerevan


Yerevan Cascade is a stairway which links two important parts of the city; Center and Monument. It is the most popular area both for the locals and for the tourists. The design of the stairway and the surrounding area is a successful mixture of innovative solutions and traditional, historical details.
The construction of Cascade was completed in 1980 by the most outstanding Armenian architects. Inside the construction Cafesjian Museum of Art is situated. It has several halls connected to each other by escalators. Part of the museum is free of charge. Outside, along the open air stairway, on different levels of construction, there are many fountains and sculptures. The statue of smoking woman and the huge cat are housed here. 
It’s a favorite place especially for youngsters. There are many cafes restaurants and pubs around Cascade. Many open air concerts and events are also held there.

    Must visit place in Yerevan. Beautiful architecture. Their museum is only open until 8pm costs 1000amd. We arrived at 7:20 and by 7:40 they had already closed top floors.

    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.

    Really nice view and excellent location however the modern art doesn't fit the theme of the city very well.

    Been here a million times since there is only so much to do in Yerevan on a given day. The lower portion of the complex and museum is quite impressive and the gardens are well maintained. It is the Yerevan’s pride and joy, and provides great views of the City and Sis and Masis (Mt. Ararat) when they aren’t obscured by air pollution. The top tiers were never finished and have been under construction for years now. A walk to the top is still worth the visit nevertheless.

    One of the main interesting attractions to visit probably multiple times a day: a giant starway with five multiple levels, with interesting sculptures, fountain and park
