Old City Under Yerevan’s Republic Square To Be Restored & Turned Into Museum.

“The work on opening a historic strip of ancient Yerevan under Republic Square and turning it into a museum section will begin this year. As a result, Republic Square will become a much more scenic place,” said PM Nikol Pashinyan on Facebook.

In 2003, the remains of stone walls, tiles of black and red tuff, pieces of clay jugs, and clay water pipes under the Republic Square in the heart of Yerevan were reveled.

Archaeologists said the structures found in the area were part of 17th-century buildings depicted by French travelers Jean-Baptiste Tavernier and Jean Chardin in their panoramic drawings of Yerevan.
