On October 7th 2011, the Charles Aznavour House opened in Yerevan, from the name of the famous French “chanteur”. The Aznavour museum-house is «a present of the whole Armenian nation to his great son».

As Armenian chief architect Narek Sargsyan mentioned, «it is not a house, not a museum, it is something like the entrance towards the homeland…» the house is situated in the upper part of the Cascade complex.
The opening ceremony took place during the official visit of the President of France in South Caucasus, Nicolas Sarkozy, last October. Serzh Sargsyan, Nicolas Sarkozy and Charles Aznavour himself, 88, took part to the official opening ceremony.
