We will start the tour from the office of Jan Armenia Tours and Travel. First, we will stop next to the drinking fountain and spin around the towering tuff masterpieces in bustling Republic Square. To the left of the History Museum building, we will stroll up to Abovyan Street and We will pass the city’s few remaining 19th-century black tuff buildings. You’ll soon reach Charles Aznavour Square, named after the French-Armenian singer commonly known as Paris’ Frank Sinatra. There, you’ll find the Moscow Cinema and a friendly-looking spider sculpted in 2008.
The next stop is Northern Avenue. It is the most modern place of Yerevan, connecting its two main areas: Republic Square and Freedom Square. Avenue decorated with many luxury buildings, restaurants, offices and commercial properties. After, we will make a left on Tumanyan Street to Swan Lake, the location of a 2015 free show by American rapper Kanye West (he surprised the crowd by diving into the lake). Continuing ahead you’ll reach the beating heart of Yerevan, Opera Square, where locals go to see a show or simply to hang out. Circling the opera on the left and we will explore the art market centred on a statue of Armenian painter Martiros Sarian. After, again we will cross the roundabout to a row of open-air cafes that lead to a statue of Alexander Tamanyan, Yerevan’s chief architect.
In the Cafesjian Center sculpture garden, we will stop and gander at the disproportionate Roman Warrior and Cat made by Colombia’s Fernando Botero, the seated human made of Latin letters by Spaniard Jaume Plensa and various hares by British artist Barry Flanagan. Finally, you’ll reach the city’s most celebrated monument, the 572-step Cafesjian Center for the Arts aka the Cascade, which was left unfinished when the Soviet Union collapsed.
The last stop will be the top of Cascade complex, where we will enjoy the best view to Yerevan!
