Constructed in a stone pattern similar to a traditional Armenian rug, Republic Square attracts swarms of tourists and locals during some of the city's most prominent concerts, venues, and ceremonies. Intersected by main streets, the oval-shaped plaza lies surrounded by important pink and white stone buildings, such as the government house, the history museum, and several ministries. Where a statue of Soviet leader Vladimir Lenin once dominated the square, today musical fountains perform choreographed light shows followed by music. You can find rest and refreshments in many cafes and restaurants nearby. Work out when and for how long to visit Republic Square and other Yerevan attractions using our handy Yerevan road trip site.

  • This is of course not an unbiased view since I grew up here and adore this place but the Republic Square especially is so dear to me. One of the most beautiful such squares in the whole wide world. The "singing" fountains, the surrounding architecture, it's all so nice. This used to be the Lenin Square during the Soviet times, democracy and regaining of independence turned into the Republic Square. Both popular uprisings of 1988 and 2018 against authoritarianism took culminated here. A lot of history and emotions in this Square.
  • Nice place to relax, atmosphere was really nice. If you're in Armenia you must visit this palace.
