Only in Yerevan you will find a giant stairway to a great skyline. It’s called Cascade and it’s definitely more than just a climbing challenge. Believe me or not, but there is an entire contemporary art museum hidden inside. It goes by the name of Cafesjian Art Center and it’s quite worth a visit.
The exterior is decorated with numerous fountains and various sculptures belonging to the museum, including pieces by Fernando Botero and Robert Indiana. The art is only an introduction to all the beauty you will see if you are brave to go to the top and if the weather gods are generous enough to make the skies clear. The Cascade is a fantastic point for picture perfect views of Mount Ararat and downtown Yerevan.
Tip for the lazier travelers: there is an escalator underneath the stairs. Use it.
I went all the way up once taking a photo of each and every sculpture for the sole purpose of this post. I’m publishing most of them today. Be nice to me now.
Thank you for walking up&down with me!
