YEREVAN CITY
ARMENIA
Yerevan    i s    the    capital    of    Armenia,    a    country    located    in    the Caucasus,   bordering   Georgia,   Turkey,   Azerbaijan   and   Iran.   It   is   largest city    of    Armenia    as    well    as    one    of    the    world's    oldest    continuously inhabited   cities.   Yerevan   is   the   administrative,   cultural,   and   industrial center   of   the   country.   It   has   been   the   capital   since   1918,   the   thirteenth in   the   history   of   Armenia,   and   the   seventh   located   in   or   around   the Ararat plain. Republic   Square   can   be   considered   the   main   square   of   Yerevan.   The Government   House,   the   History   Museum   and   the   National   Gallery,   the Marriott   Hotel   and   several   other   government   buildings   are   located   on this   huge   square.   Originally   designed   by   Alexander   Tamanyan   in   1924, Republic   Square   is   the   favorite   hangout   of   the   locals.   With   its   unique pink   neoclassical   buildings   and   the   reflecting   pool,   Republic   Square can   easily   be   considered   Yerevan’s   architectural   highlight.   What   I   found remarkable   about   this   square   was   the   unified   architectural   style   –   all buildings share the same pink-ish and yellow-ish neoclassical design. The   Cascade   is   a   staircase   that   connects   Yerevan’s   center   (Kentron)   with the   Monument   neighborhood.   It   consists   of   multiple   levels   and   a   total of   572   steps.   Apart   from   its   architectural   magnificence,   the   Cascade offers   sweeping   views   of   the   city   and,   on   clear   days,   mighty   Mount Ararat in the background. The   Cafesjian   Center   for   the   Arts   is   an   arts   museum   located   within   the Cascade    complex.    It    offers    a    variety    of    exhibitions    and    dozens    of modern    and    contemporary    sculptures    by    well-known    international sculptors.   The   sculptures   are   scattered   around   Cascade   Park,   the   green area in the lower section of the Cascade complex.
