Yerevan’s Singing Fountains





Yerevan’s Singing Fountains

Perhaps the most unexpectedly enjoyable part of our visit to Armenia, was the singing fountains in Republic Square.

Quite a lot of Eastern European cities have them, but they pale in comparison to Yerevan. Everything from 18th century classical music, to the Mission Impossible theme tune. People come from all over the city, after a meal or a few drinks, to take in the wonderful atmosphere.

I would go as far to say that it’s worth visiting Yerevan just to see them! Photographs don’t really do them justice so here’s a video I found online.

Has anyone else visited and seen them?
