[[Image:Cascades-CIMG4907.JPG|thumb|400px|right|Cascade steps in central [[Yerevan]].]]The Cascades are a massive stairwell up the side of a hill in [[Yerevan]], connecting the central district to [[Haghtanak Park]] and the Nork area.  The views are spectacular, and for the lazy there are escalators on the left hand side inside the structure.  The structure was privatized by [[Gerard Cafesjian]] and the top is the site of construction for his art collection.  In the summer there are free open-air concerts held with the cascade steps themselves serving as seating/stands.

Some of the statues have already been brought in and placed all along the Cascades - including works by [[Lynn Chadwick]], [[Barry Flanagan]], [[Stanislav Libensky]] and [[Jaroslava Brychtova]].  There are two statues by [[Fernando Botero]] - a black [[Cat]] at the bottom and a [[Roman Gladiator]] at the top on the platform.
