Beautiful square with great cafes. If you are fan of hooka you can find it there easily. But unfortunately fountain doesn't work in winter and early spring
Here is the location of Opera House. The perfect place to spend time in the morning and afternoon.
People gather to walk while their children can run and play safely
Great square, lovely cafes and atmosphere around and lots of kids riding bikes and toy bars bring spirit to the square, plus the nice statues and opera add to the look. However the area could be really improved if the cement was changed into tile, added some bushes, benches, trash cans and nice street lights down the square from the entrances into the square to the opera, and made the vendors renting out bikes and running carnival games at the edges of the square more organized to make the area look nicer. Basically great place that can be even better.
One of nice place in Yerevan
At some point, every visitor to Yerevan needs to make up their mind: Which is their favorite square, Republic or Freedom? Republic is visually more impressive, but Freedom has more character. Republic is mostly a passive experience; but Freedom is bustling with places to eat and perhaps an opera to watch.
The square was originally named after Ivan Paskevich. The location was first named Freedom Square in 1918, during the foundation of the First Georgian Republic. Freedom Square was the site of the 1907 Tiflis bank robbery.
It was awesome for the first time visit and getting better for next visits!
