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 .

Grand square of Yerevan.. Also known as the Lenin Square.. Nice fountains in the square.. Provides a 360 view of the surrounding government offices.. When we were there, it was the beginning of the successful Velvet Revolution.. There were crowds and news crew all over the square..
Republic Public square is a central place. Its like a big round about with old architectural buildings all around. Good to be there to have few snaps captured as a memory.
