Yerevan City Night Strolling

3-days Solo tour on Winter Armenia
february 22-24, 2013 friday to sunday

on Khor Virap monastery overlooking Mt. Ararat

After finishing those 2 days of day tour I just spent my dinner in a special burger stand just 50 meters away of the hostel. Afterwards, I went back to the city to maximize my time feeling the city center winter ambiance and Armenian ordinary life.

The Cascade is a giant stairway in Yerevan, Armenia. It links the downtown Kentron area of Yerevan with the Monument neighborhood. Inside the Cascade, underneath the exterior steps is an escalator going the length of the complex. There are also rooms connected to some of the landings along the escalators which comprise the Cafesjian Museum of Art. The exterior of Cascade, in addition to stairs has multiple levels with fountains and sculptures. The stairs afford walkers unobstructed views of central Yerevan and Mount Ararat.

Republic Square, formerly Lenin Square is the large central town square in Yerevan, Armenia. The square is intersected by the following streets: Abovian, Nalbandian, Tigran Mets Avenue, Vazgen Sargsyan and Amiryan. The oval shaped square has a stone pattern in the centre, meant to look like a traditional Armenian rug from above. The large dancing water fountains are located at the northern forehead of the square in front of the National Gallery. The statue of Lenin used to be located in the southern forehead of the square, but when Armenia regained its independence, the statue was brought down and replaced with a large TV monitor.

On the northern part of Mashtots avenue there is Matenadaran (a book depository), one of the world's most ancient libraries. Its collections comprise ancient Armenian books and miniature paintings that have gained world-wide fame. Among its unique treasures are the works of ancient classical authors and rare manuscripts that have come to our days only in the Armenian translation.
