Cafesjian Center for the Arts, Yerevan

4.6
Explore a lavishly decorated stairway-building and a museum of art hidden inside the walls at Cafesjian Center for the Arts. The 118 m (387 ft) tall landmark embodies the transition from the Soviet era to democracy: partially completed before the devastating earthquake and breakup of the USSR, the complex was finalized in 2002, marking the country's economic revitalization and opening of cultural borders. As you approach the monumental site, observe the designed fountains, courtyards, and sculptures located on terraces and platforms. The interior contains an intricate network of halls and corridors--all connected to the outdoors via series of escalators. When you reach the top of the stairway, enjoy a panoramic view of the city center and Mount Ararat.

  • My visit to this place was in the evening, in the dark, the area has changed a lot, it appeared compositions and monuments, presented to the city! It's hard for me to appreciate this place, because the city is poorly lit. Need to come back next time in the daytime!
