Cascade Complex

Yerevan's Cascade Complex - an enormous white stairwell built into the hillside, replete with flowing water fountains to mimic a natural cascade - links Yerevan's CBD with the Monument Neighbourhood at the top of the hill, and is an important cultural hub in Armenia's capital city. The awe-inspiring structure is not only ideal photo fodder, but also plays host to a variety of free cultural events that operate year-round, from music concerts, to art exhibitions, and more. Although construction on the Cafesjian Museum of Contemporary Art is still ongoing, there are already numerous sculptures on display at the monument - including two by Fernando Botero. The Cascade Complex is a wonderful place to walk, jog or bike around, while soaking up magnificent views of Mount Ararat and Yerevan's city centre.

Information & Facts

Tamanyan Street, Yerevan
Armenian is the official language, and it has its own alphabet. Russian is widely spoken and English is becoming more prominent.

The official currency of Armenia is the Dram (AMD), which is divided into 100 lumas. Foreign currency can be exchanged at banks as well as many hotels, with US dollars the most widely recognised and easily changed, although notes should be in good condition. Credit cards are not widely accepted other than in some large hotels and restaurants. Travellers cheques should be in US dollars to avoid additional charges and there are few ATMs in Yerevan, including HSBC. It is advisable to carry plenty of small change in local currency as shops and markets will often not have change.

Local time in Armenia is GMT +4.
