  • We cherish the memory of the fallen! A place of remembrance and pride of the people. Complex nature and people with flowers-memory! Hard, but be sure to visit all of them.

  • I was touched by the poignant beauty of the memorial. You must plan for several hours to truly get the most of this site. Not a place you want to spend a few minutes. You will be cheated. The story is...  more »

  • The Armenian Genocide Complex built in 1967. The 44-meter stele symbolizes national rebirth of Armenians. 12 slabs are positioned in a circle are representing twelve lost provinces in present-day Turkey. In the center of circle, at a depth 1.5 meters, there is an eternal flame dedicated to the 1.5 million people killed during Armenian Genocide. Every tourist should visit Tsitsernakaberd
  • Great place for understanding the story of the armenian people. The museum is very informative and the exhibits are very interesting.
  • You truly have a overwhelming feeling of sadness that grips your heart. Genocide is the worst human atrocitie that the world will ever know.
  • More than 100 years ago, the Ottoman Turk planed to decimate all Armenian within Turkey. Millions of Armenian were deported by force to Syrian desert and the death toll was estimated to be around 1.5 million. It was known as Armenian genocide but until now Turkish government still denied such happenings. 2015 is the 100th anniversary of Armenian Genocide and it is a good time to know about this almost forgotten history in Armenian Genocide Memorial. Free entrance and highly recommended. If you like history, the museum can spent you a whole afternoon.
  • very important museum as well as Hiroshima and Nagasaki atomic bomb museum. we should transfer story to next generation.
