Full description
This amazing tour will give you an opportunity to discover the hidden story of the capital of Armenia, either on your own or with a knowledgeable and professional private guide. The tour will take you to the heart of Yerevan City, the Republic Square, where you can get in touch with the great history of Armenia through the magnificent architectural ensemble that surrounds the area. After refreshing yourself with some natural spring water from right out of the ground, you will then head to one of the oldest parts of the city.

The Opera and Ballet Theater is another 10 minute walk from the Moscow Cinema Theater. This is one of the absolute masterpieces of world architecture that the city of Yerevan hosts, and is undoubtedly one of the principal landmarks of Armenia. The Freedom or Theatrical Square in front of it is one of the most popular leisure places for local young people who come here to bike or skate. The Swan Lake near the Opera House is tightly connected by its history to the Opera Theater, and is another perfect spot to enjoy walking and meeting local people.

Continuing your way through French Square and the park of the Yerevan State Conservatory, you will reach the Cascade, or as the locals call it the "Stairway to Heaven”. This is a key structure in Yerevan City's architecture which was constructed in the 70s, and has been revived since the early 2000s, undergoing major restoration works. Today this is one of the beloved places of not only the locals but also tourists, with multiple cozy cafes, bars, and restaurants. Concerts and traditional dance events are also periodically held here to entertain the public.

After learning some of the history of Yerevan and climbing some 572 stairs up the Cascade, you will unveil the extraordinary beauty of the city on the background of the majestic Mount Ararat. Here you will be more than welcome to use the escalators inside the Cascade Art Center, to assist you in enjoying the modern art pieces in the galleries.
