Yerevan city center is the best place to be. The hotels, restaurants, nightclubs, galleries and parks are located in near proximity to each other. Socially active places in the Yerevan are parks around the streets in upper area of downtown. Cafes near Opera Square are great place to visit during the day or in lunchtime. The major streets for the walks in Yerevan are Mashtots Avenue, Sayat Nova Avenue, Abovyan, Tumanyan, and Teryan streets.

To get familiar with the city you can start your walk on Mashtots Avenue. The avenue has many great restaurants, cafes, and shops. The main attractions are Matenadaran - the Institute of Ancient Manuscripts, Opera Square, groceries market (Shuka). The next interesting streets are Abovyan and Tumanyan. These streets are nice for evening walk and have many shaded cafes for an ice cream brake. Abovyan Street has many attractions, hotels, restaurants, shops and historical buildings. Going down on Abovyan Street, you will see the Republic Square, which is the focal point of the city. The square is surrounded by Armenian Government buildings, Mariot Armenia Hotel and History Museum of Armenia.
Parks are plentiful in the Yerevan, the biggest one starts from Nairi Movie Theater and ends near St. Gregor Lusavorich cathedral. The area between Alex Manukyan Street and Khanjian Street is a big park with trees and fountains.
Another place worth mentioning is the Cascade complex. It is an interesting structure with escalators going up to the Victory Park. You can use Cascade escalators free of charge and it is a much better alternative to climbing up the stares in summer heat. The Victory Park is on a mountain and has a scenic overlook to the entire downtown from above.
During the day you can visit two beautiful churches of Yerevan. The St. Sarkis church is located in the beginning of Mashtots Avenue and it is situated near Hrazdan gorge. The newly built St.Gregor Lusavorich cathedral is located on the crossroads of Tigran Mets Avenue and Khanjian Street. The cathedral has some unusual design, but looks magnificent from the Republic Square.

Here you can visit the museum of Armenian famous movie director Sergey Paradjanov. His own artworks are presented in the museum: films, collages, dolls and reproductions. All these works give clear image of great director's art.
Every Saturday and Sunday the park behind the Khanjyan street becomes a souvenir fair. Make sure to negotiate a better deal and you can get some discounts on gorgeous woodcarvings, pottery and hand made jewellery and souvenirs
from Obsidian. On the weekends you will see a painting fair in the Saryan Park near the Mashtots Avenue. When you are looking for the Armenian cognac in Yerevan, the best place to shop is ARARAT factory.
Outside of the downtown, there are many great things to see. The Hrazdan River gorge is beautiful. Other interesting places to visit outside of the downtown are the Genocide Memorial and Erebuni ancient settlement.
Yerevan has very active social life. If you are looking for nightlife and live entertainment, there is a live music in some cafes like Sayat Nova, Aragast, Triumph and many others.
