Alexander Tamanyan Statue, Yerevan

3.9
#34 of 175 in Things to do in Yerevan
A memorial to a legendary architect, Alexander Tamanyan Statue is a striking sculpture in the heart of the city. Highly involved in the planning of Yerevan, Tamanyan left his architectural footprint all over the city center, in the wide avenues, ring roads, and numerous parks. Set at the foot of the city's iconic art museum, in a bright and spacious square of Tamanyan's own design, this monument makes for an ideal photo op.

    Visiting late on a Friday night and there were hundreds milling around this statue - resting, relaxing and having photos taken. With Big Alexander wathing down on all of it.  more »

    This beautiful and impressive statue sort to commemorate the Armenian fiabista reflects the style with which the others were built in memory of the founding fathers of Armenia and its most famous sons.

    Regrettable representation of an architect who transformed a city in a capital. The pose of the statue as an architect is unique, its realization is too "communist"  more »

Where to stay in Yerevan

When it comes to accommodations in Yerevan, you'll find a number and a range befitting its status as the capital and most populous city in the country. Look in the Kentron (center) district, where by far the greatest number and best quality hotels can be found. Hotels in old Soviet blocks, grand former administrative buildings, or newly built high-rises offer standard to luxury rooms, along with a set of smaller hostels. With prices notoriously high for the region (and many visitors using Yerevan as a base from which to see the country), consider renting an apartment if staying for a longer period.
