Although not an Armenian I have lived here for many years and the annual April 24th trip to the monument to remember the Armenian dead from the Genocide is never to be missed. The whole place has a special aura plus great views of Ararat. Visit the new museum there too.

its huge but simple, its complex but easy to understand. Worth a visit, good view over town, the eternal flame is encircled by 12 huge stone mansonry slabs that recall the 12 areas of former Armenia
This memorial is really impressive. The parc surrounding it contains Trees presented by Armenians from the whole four pointa of the world. The monument stands on a platform that overlook over all Yerevan (Mount Ararat can be seen in the background too). The eternal flames and the pillars surrounding it are a clever architectural set up. It gives the impression... 更多
