Yerevan is a cozy hospitable city that has so many interesting things to offer to its foreign guests. One of its characteristic features is a large number of green beautifully designed parks created for a pleasant rest and interesting pastime. Below we present the most favorite parks of both Yerevan residents and tourists:
Parks in Yerevan: Victory Park
The famous Victory Park dedicated to the victory in The World War II is located on the Azatutyan Avenue. The place chosen for the park is absolutely perfect: the observation area offers the spectacular view of Yerevan and it seems that the city is right in your hand!
Here you will also see the sculpture called «Mother of Armenia» which embodies the country’s readiness to protect its inhabitants at any moment. The sculpture represents a woman with a huge sword in her hand and a shield at her feet. Its height is 43 m and in the pedestal there is a museum dedicated to the war.
The Victory Park will be an interesting and delightful place for children as well as there are many interesting amusements and carousels. No one will be bored! Here you can also enjoy the beauties of a small lake, sit at its shores for a rest or even take the yachts and catamarans. So once in Yerevan do not miss this beautiful place.
Parks in Yerevan: Lovers’ Park
What could be more enjoyable than to spend a romantic date or simply relax in the cozy green Lovers’ park? This wonderful park is located on Baghramyan Street not far from The Parliament House. Previously, it was called “Pushkin Garden”, but after the reconstruction in 2008 it turned into a beautiful and well- maintained place where every detail is thought out. By the way, it was designed by famous French designer and architect Pierre Rambakh.
Various interesting events are often organized here (exhibitions, photo and film screenings) and every weekend you will see wedding couples who traditionally spend the photo session in the park. The visitors will be able to buy food and drinks as well as use the WI-FI service, which operates throughout the park. By the way, for those who are interested we can note the park comprises more than one hectare of green area, 370 trees and 4 waterfalls!
Parks in Yerevan: Tumanyan Park
Another favorite park of Yerevan Residents is located on Alabyan Street in the gorge of Hrazdan River. It was called after the famous Armenian poet and writer Hovannes Tumanyan. Neat lawns, old trees, peaceful silence – all this characterizes the cozy park of Tumanyan. The children here can have a good time on the special playgrounds and the athletes will be able to take advantage of training apparatus. This place is perfect for running away from summer heat and enjoying the coolness in the evenings. In short, go there and see for yourself.
Just near the park there is an amazing building «Tumo» – the center of creative technologies created for children from 12 to 18-year-old who are taught the development of web-design, computer games, digital media and animation. The whole system of the center is unique and has no analogs in the world, so “Tumo” attracted considerable attention from abroad.
