Arno Babajanyan Statue, Yerevan

4.5
#18 of 83 in Sightseeing in Yerevan
Monument Landmark
See Arno Babajanyan Statue and judge for yourself if its whimsical expression deserved so much criticism from Armenia's conservative public. The statue represents a famed composer and songwriter playing a massive piano. When first revealed, the statue caused such public outcry that its creator David Bejanian was forced to modify it. He agreed to make some subtle alterations--shortening the composer's fingers and toning down his facial features--but kept the overall expression. The statue still provokes strong reactions, though the younger natives gladly take pictures with "the big-nosed man."

  • I'm a big fan of this sculpture. Many times appeared beside her, and every time I okatyvaet live the emotion of "stone". Magical work of art.

  • One of the best statues in Yerevan! Arno Babajanian was not only a great composer, but also a very good pianist. The statue is dynamic, and the people who knew Babajanian in person can recognize his m...  more »
  • ... also witty realism of the statue that captures the musician in a nearly caricatured laying great emphasis of interpretation-that does not hide the great Armenian nose, sympathetically and caricaturalmente accented ... nice even for children that if they climb in every way!!

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.
