Tsitsernakaberd, Yerevan

4.8
A memorial complex near the Hrazdan River, Tsitsernakaberd commemorates the 1.5 million victims of the Armenian Genocide. First opened in 1995, the site draws scores of families and tourists to remember and honor those who perished in 1915, during one of world's most gruesome systematic exterminations of minority subjects. A striking 44 m (144 ft) stela dominates the forest-covered compound, symbolizing the rebirth of the nation. Visit the memorial wall with the names of villages and towns where atrocities took place, the eternal flame that pays homage to the fallen, and the informative museum-institute. From the terrace you can also see snow-capped Mount Ararat in the distance. Using our online itinerary creator, Yerevan attractions like Tsitsernakaberd can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • It's a little bit far from the center of Yerevan, but it's definitely worth visiting. The monument is huge and the fire inside it makes you feel very sad for all Armenians who were killed in April 24t...  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.
