  • Large landscaped area. You can walk under the Sun among the roses and shrubs. Beautiful views of the surrounding area very close to the border with Turkey. The buildings themselves are impressive. In the main part of the exhibition is devoted to the Museum of Ethnography of the districts of Yerevan, interestingly enough! True, it would be best to take a guide, but time did not permit. At the bottom of the first floor of the Hall is dedicated to the events of the battle of Sardarapatskoj-an important event in the national history. the truth, as far as I remember, the signature there only in Armenian.

Next to warriors, prepared at the cost of life defeat the enemy stood up and the elderly, and children, and women. 26 May, Turkish regular army was completely defeated. In commemoration of the 50 anniversary of this historic battle in May 1968, was opened this wonderful architectural ensemble, born on the Israelian architect. Architecture of the memorial complex of extraordinary individual and therefore unique. This structure has no prototypes in Armenian architecture. Here is a harmonious combination of architecture and sculpture. The ensemble was built from Red Tuff. Particular originality range gives high and beautiful belfry-Tomb. Its transparent lightness even more highlights ...
