Republic Square (Armenian: Հանրապետության հրապարակ, Hanrapetut′yan hraparak, known locally as Hraparak, "the square") is the central town square in Yerevan, the capital of Armenia. It consists of two sections: an oval roundabout and a trapezoid-shaped section which contains a pool with musical fountains. The square is surrounded by five major buildings built in pink and yellow tufa in the neoclassical style with extensive use of Armenian motifs. This architectural ensemble includes the Government House, the History Museum and the National Gallery, Armenia Marriott Hotel and two buildings that formerly housed the ministries of Foreign Affairs and Transport and Communications. The square was originally designed by Alexander Tamanian in 1924. The construction of most of the buildings was completed by the 1950s; the last building—the National Gallery—was completed in 1977.

Magnificent style architecture and musical fountain are very nice. Lots of people on Saturday and Sunday night.
If you live anywhere near here, you ought to be here when the sun sets, cause the fountains and lights just light this place up. With a museum towards the rear, this place is home to the most relaxing experience you could ever have in Yerevan. Long story short, you can find some of the best hotels of the city in vicinity and there's a light and sound show that's not to be missed. Straightaway recommend this place !
The heart of the city. During the day, you can enjoy watching the buildings and the unique architecture. At nights you can see the dancing and singing fountains, consist of 2750 little fountains, which have been presented to Yerevan for its 2750s anniversary, like the birthday candles. So colorful.
Downtown Yerevan is the epicenter of the city and a place where everyone can meet and enjoy many activities. From thus location you are near entertainment, shops, restaurants, and much more. A must see when in Yerevan.
Place I really like. All generations gather here. In summer fountain sing, I'm not the biggest fan of this entertainment but it's decent.
May 28th celebrations. Awesome but the music was hard to see. Great fireworks at the end. Must see and the post office is there also. Treacherous to walk across the streets. Playing chicken even though the pedestrians have the right of way.
The most beautiful republic square in the world! Heart of the city. I love it in the morning at 8 when watering cars are there. It looks like city is waiking up.
Amazing place with a lively night show until midnight. The republic square in Yerevan has high class restaurants, the Marriott hotel, Government buildings and a museum with a water fountain show. The water fountain show was first of the kind in the whole Soviet Union founded in 1977, surprisingly it took them 51 years to complete the project. You must visit this landmark it is one of the most (if not the most) landmark in Yerevan especially because it is centered directly in the middle of the beautiful city. If you are going during 6:00-12:00 pm I would advise you to be extremely careful of your children and pickpockets since its heavily crowded.
Nice place - city center of Yerevan with good restaurants within walking distance. We visited on a Saturday so there was an outdoor market, unsure if it is a weekend market only or there on weekdays also, however some good deals for the taking, learnt quickly not to accept the price they first quote as there is a lot of room for discount bargains... the dancing fountains were not operational when we visited.
I liked the atmosphere of this square and it’s nearby places very much! Try to visit it at the night when the musical fountains are playing.
The Republic Square at the historic moment when velvet revolution declared victory. 25.04.2018 Since this is a place review, I would like to acknowledge how important is this place for Armenia. (have been and i hope will be)
