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.

  • Beautiful monument in honour of the victims of the Armenian genocide. The structure consists of a perpetual flame protected by 12 large slabs of stone! Not far away stands a tower of about 40mt. The place is very popular with locals and it is easy to meet women with long black robes carry flowers on the Memorial! Nice garden for some political representatives and authorities have planted fir trees in honor of the victims.

  • Turkish Kırglangıç Castle in Tsitsernakaberd memorial complex, huh?. In Yerevan, is not necessarily a place to go. In order to empathize, to feel the living ... we went by taxi to be away from the city centre. It's cool that we have not mastered the tears while walking down the street. Old Armenian names of cities on the way to the monument is to be found. Finally, just to let you all know, the unquenchable fire. It fell way to set aside your prejudice already Yerevan at. In this case go to share the pain and suffering of a flower's genocide memorial.

  • Visit the Medz Yeğernin unquenchable fire that needs to be burned. How pain can be granted a knighthood in terms of a unique experience to see. What I didn't know when I feel closest to a most Sülalemdeki names. In honor of the monumental historical pain.
