Yerevan - Summer night at Republic Square

Republic Square (or Hanrapetutyan Hraparak in Armenian; once it was Lenin Square) is one of the places where the residents of Yerevan and its visitors like to spend their summer evenings.
Another place is the Yerevan Cascade.

In summer the evenings and nights are still warm and people like to spend that time in open air. I must admit that I was greatly (and pleasantly) surprised at the number of terraces that the Armenian capital counts. In summertime Yerevan has a real Mediterranean atmosphere.
Around the many fountains on the square it was cozy and crowded up to the nighttime hours.

The vast square is completely surrounded by beautiful buildings that are well illuminated at night.
In the workshop you see how Republic Square (or at least a part of it) looks like at daytime.
