One good Yerevan travel advice is to start your trip with a walking tour of the city centre. These tours will give you a good orientation and background of the city you are visiting, you learn so much about where you are!

Republic Square 

Start your walk from Republic Square, take a quick look at the History Museum, the National Gallery and the Government House, as well as the iconic Armenia Marriott Hotel.

A truly magnificent thing about the square is its musical fountains. From early spring to late fall there is a fantastic fountain and light show that is accompanied by some great music of various genres.

In 2003 the asphalt of the square was removed to build it in a different style and the remains of stone walls, tiles of black and red tuff, pieces of clay jugs, and clay water pipes appeared before the gaze of the builders.

As archaeologists assure, it can be concluded that the structures found under the building area have been a part of 17th-century buildings. However, the square was built leaving the secret of the hidden town to the next generations.

Northern Avenue

After wandering around the republic square continue your walk to the Northern Avenue, a 450 metres long and 27 metres wide pedestrian street where you will see 11 modern buildings and 4 small squares. It also features an underground mall and car park.

Some of Yerevan’s most upscale shops can be found along the pedestrian avenue, including Armani, Steve Madden, Desigual and Burberry and other well recognized brands.

Opera Theatre

Your next stop is Yerevan Opera Theatre. It has been a main point of interest in Yerevan since its opening in 1933.

Designed by architect Alexander Tamanian, the Opera building has two halls where concerts are organized. Attending a concert during your trip would be an interesting activity to remember.

If you are not interested in music or art you can just hang out near Opera as it is in a centralized location and there are many cafes and pubs in the area. There are a lot of children’s games, rides, and other events happening.

Cascade

Your walking tour will get you to the top of the Cascade, a giant stairway, from where you can watch the city. Inside the Cascade there are seven escalators that rise along the length of the complex and exhibit halls connected to some of the landings along the escalators which compose the Cafesjian Museum of Art.
