Cascade is a park and a gallery/concert hall right in the center of Yerevan. It has an open air gallery, a very beautiful one. The park is surrounded by cafes and other eataries, which do not interfer with art. Evenings see a lot of people stolling the alleys. From the top on a clear day you can catch a magnificent... More

It looks like a stairway to heaven: the approach gets one thru a nicely kept green with nice modern art objects tucked in. At the end of the green a huge flights of stairs lead uphill with lots of more artefacts on each landing. From the top great views of the city and, with luck, of the Ararat Mountain. An... More

Most of exhibitions are free of charge, and even one that you must pay for are very cheap, so do not miss it. Main entrance is from the left side, so best... More

Even though there's a level missing near the top, each level has a different appearance with wonderful architecture, much of it using water structures. The easy way to climb it is with the free escalator on the left, with art exhibits at every level.

Cascade is known for it's art pieces located outside and also galleries inside. A must visit place in Yerevan, located in downtown. You get a stunning view on Yerevan city, Opera house and mount Ararat anytime in the day and evening. Concerts are organized summertime. You can walk the infinite stairs or just sit and enjoy the sculptures of Botero,... More

Interesting the exterior and excentric in the interior. The Aznavour Foundation is located here. Anyway, worth the visit and escalators in the interior.

Currently the Cascade has become a must-see place in Yerevan. After the Gafesjian's family's take over of the construction, they have converted it into a museum of modern art. there are many sculptures there made by artists like Botero. You walk in the area of Cascade and feel yourself in a completely different Yerevan. It is the beloved place for... More

It 's very nice to walk around the Cascade in the evening. The place is quiet and without danger, but anyway be careful!
