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. 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.
Considered the heart of Yerevan, the Republic Square is definitely a must-visit location any season of the year where you can feel the grandness of the architectural ensemble. The singing fountains perform every evening during the warmer months. It may get a bit crowded during summer evenings and nights, as the square attracts not only tourists but locals who love to take a nice stroll during summer evenings.
