This is not so much an art center, but a museum shop is basically open. But here is the best point to ascend and overlook the entire city. Go up to the top floor, not finished yet. It is said that there is no money to make! If the weather is good, you can see the Attra Mountain in the distance, which is beautiful.
Near Freedom Square, there are many artistic creations here, and it is a huge exhibition hall in the city center. It is a good location to overlook the city when it climbs to the top.
At night, Yerevan is full of people, shoulder to shoulder, gift shops, gold, silver and jadeware, traditional clothing, wood carvings, unique, row upon row of luxury shops, neon flashing, vibrant colors, enough to make people around the world admire The tourists here are eye-opening. Buskers of all colors appeared in turn, so it was so lively. The contrast between the impressive medieval quiet church during the day and the colorful world in front of you at night is a bit trance. Armenians have a very high talent for art. Various street sculptures come alive and have different shapes, which makes people feel the artistic atmosphere coming to the face. Standing among the crowds, I will feel a little inexplicably moved. After all, the journey of Transcaucasus didn't feel so exciting, but it was unexpectedly so unforgettable. Armenia is definitely worth savoring slowly, and it is endlessly memorable.
Yerevan, the capital of Armenia, is an ancient cultural capital with a long history, a city built on a hillside, with a clear blue sky, colorful houses, and the whole city is full of art. The art center in the city center, also known as the Great Steps, is more than 500 meters in length. It is a five-step ladder-shaped building and is a must-see for tourists. When you enter the square in front of the Art Center, you will be attracted by many art sculptures along the way. This is also called the Art Square. Walking in it is indeed art. This is Yerevan’s big city streetscape, and it is also a trendy place in Yerevan. Below the big steps is actually the exhibition hall of the Art Center. The escalator rises to the platform above the steps. Artworks of various materials are displayed on both sides of the escalator and in the air. These artworks are beautifully colored and peculiar in shape and are worth seeing. The speed of the escalator is not slow, so it is really good to go. When the elevator reaches the top, it overlooks the whole Yerevan from a height. It is like opening the scroll of the painting. It suddenly opens up. The colorful style and appearance of Yerevan can be seen clearly. Armenia has made every effort to build this city. In the distance is the sacred mountain where Noah’s Ark is docked. If you are lucky, you can watch the sunset from the top and you can see the magnificent scenery of "the ancient city embraces the peaks and the sunset reflects the snow mountains". It will undoubtedly belong to Yerevan's most charming and gorgeous A show. Sitting on the ground in the terraced square, at this moment, be a real Armenian and watch Yerevan's cold and warm vicissitudes.
We left the hostel and walked to an art museum on the hillside behind Freedom Square. This art museum is also located on a hillside in the city, so it is also a good place to watch the city, especially the night scene. Walk for about 20 minutes before arriving at this art museum. From the outside, this museum is a stepped sunken building, so people commonly call it the "Yerevan Steps". In front of the museum is a rectangular street garden with many abstract art sculptures. If you look carefully at these works, whether they are figures or animals, they have a lot of meaning. Then walk into the museum from the left entrance and take the internal escalator to reach each platform. On one side of the escalator are all kinds of large-scale works of art, most of which are mainly furniture, which is colorful and artistic. The escalators to the museums on all floors are closed on Monday, so we can only watch the fountain water from the corridor platforms on all floors and overlook the capital city from different heights. The escalator stepped out of the platform after reaching the highest level. There are sculptures of diving athletes here. Such high platform diving can be considered as profound. From here, I went up the stairs and found that there is still a long distance from here to the highest viewing platform, and this distance is the unfinished part of this large platform building. The well-founded concrete is covered with rusty steel mesh. The fence encloses this area, and visitors must walk around to reach the highest viewing platform. Unexpectedly, this huge art museum is also an unfinished project.
According to the information, the predecessor of this art museum was funded by the government of the former Soviet Union. It was designed in 1971 and completed in 1980. Between 2002 and 2009, well-known Armenian-American businessmen and philanthropists Gerard, Leon, and Cafesjian sponsored large-scale maintenance and refurbishment of this place. Only then did the former Soviet Union’s dilapidated old buildings be transformed into their current appearance, and at the same time It has become a famous leisure sightseeing spot in Yerevan. Unexpectedly, this is still a scenic spot for waste utilization. Walk around on the highest viewing platform, where the location is higher and the city scenery is more open. Afterwards, we waited for the sunset on the upper viewing platform. After sunset, the city lights up. Because there are no decorative lights, the night view of the whole city looks very ordinary. Among the three Transcaucasian countries, the best night view of the city is Baku, Azerbaijan, after all, it is an oil rich country. Again, Georgia’s Batumi and Tbilisi, while Armenia’s Yerevan can only rank last.
I didn’t understand what the big steps mean, but after visiting the site, I discovered that it is very distinctive. In fact, it is based on a big mountain taking advantage of the trend and made into the form of steps. It is estimated to be as high as 20 or 30 floors. The inside is actually a museum. The height is not low, but there are escalators. On both sides, you can admire the works of very modern artists. When you go outside, you can overlook the entire city. The entire steps can be used as stools. It is a good place for tourists and couples to relax. Many works of art up and down the steps are very distinctive.
