I enjoyed looking across at Ararat in the sunshine. The Cascades are the best place from which to do this,

When visiting Yerevan, you must stop at The Cascade, both during the day and at night. It is well worth it for the views and art work. The Envoy Tours, (walking day and night tours) both stop here.

The setting and the museum pieces are terrific. There was a concert at the bottom of the Cascade when I was there. I was told that this happens quite often. The weather was perfect and the crowd was having a great time. A night to remember.

I just loved this place. The art pieces are great and the view of the city with the Ararat as background is one of the best views in Yerevan. It is a shamed that the upper part has not been finished.

Of all the sighseeing places in Yerevan, I liked The Cascade the most. Modern sculptures are really interesting and when you walk to your right ( at the end of each escalator going up ), you can get out and enjoy a nice landscape and even wash your face with the water running out of huge stone pitchers (I did,...

Beautiful sculptures and gardens.Very relaxing walk with escalators if necessary for climbing up the hill. The steps make for a gentle climb outside.

Half a day visit. Modern Art. Nice landscape from anywhere on premises, especially on top level. I suggest you wear flat shoes. Beautiful outdoor lighting at night.

Long staircase up to the top of a hill. take the escalator up for free and on each level of the escalator there is great modern art. To really see the art, you have to pay and go into a separate modern art museum with an extensive collection. We loved it. Many cafes outside the base of the staircase for... More

The Cascade is beautiful! There are lots of statues outside, and it is like a park on a staircase. It is situated on a small boulevard lined with outdoor cafes, and is just lovely. Inside there is a museum which is also well worth a visit. One of the gems of Yerevan!

The view from the top is magnificent, but the whole museum is extremely confusing. The best part is free. Walk inside the building on the left, take the elevator to the top floor. You'll see some exhibits on the left as you ride the escalator. Then walk outside and down the stairs to see the sculptures outside and enjoy the... More
