Republic Square @ Yerevan

Like in Tbilisi, we wanted to go on a Free Walking Tour to explore the town. This time we were the only ones on a grey weekday. For sure Yerevan would make a different impression on a sunny summer day, but we enjoyed our walk nonetheless.

Republic Square

The centre of town is the Republic Square, with big Soviet time buildings of red and white tuff stone surrounding the square. The fountain in front of the Historical Museum just got cleaned, the museum was closed for renovation.

Mirzoyan Library & cafe

The old buildings in Yerevan had many balconies, which made life easier in the hot summers of Armenia. This house is not only some kind of library, but also a cafe/restaurant.

A day in town was enough we decided, we are certainly not city people. But we stayed another night at our parking, before we left town to explore a temple and a monastery – more on our next post!
