Smoking Woman, Yerevan

3.8
Admire the curves and the lofty attitude of the reclining bronze Smoking Woman, a larger-than-life sculpture by Colombian sculptor Fernando Botero, erected in the Yerevan Cascade Complex. Part of the Cafesjian Sculpture Garden, the sculpture stands next to a small fountain built along the long stairway in central Yerevan. This woman enjoying a slim cigarette is one of the three outdoors sculptures in Yereven made by the father of Boterismo movement, who hails from Medelin.

  • My second home is in Colombia and it was amazing to see one of our Colombian artists with several statues in the park. The smoking woman was just one of them. There were two more very close by.  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.
