Old city under Republic Square will become an open-air museum

The old city under the capital's Republic Square will become an open-air museum. As RA Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said on his Facebook page, this  year work will begin to open the historical layer of old Yerevan,  located under the Republic Square. Thus, it will become a kind of  museum object.

To recall, the underground city was discovered in 2003 during the  reconstruction of the square. In particular, tiles from multi-colored  tuff, clay water pipes, fragments of residential and basement were  found. According to experts, the buildings belonged to the XVII  century. Meanwhile, in the same 2003 year, the find was mothballed,  covered with sand and covered with a layer of asphalt.
