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.

  • Monument to the Armenian genocide victims in Ottoman Turkey. Silence. Peace. Always fresh flowers. Eternal Fire. and Ararat.

  • You cannot come to Armenia without visiting the Armenian Genocide memorial dating back to about a century ago. Built in the fifenary of the facts and expanded with a museum that is impressive. Not to forget a million and a half or maybe two of the deaths of the first genocide of the twentieth century. Touching.

  • This is a very important place, and, as it would not be pragmatic, the best viewing platform in the city. Only here you realize that Yerevan is surrounded by mountain peaks. In the new Year's Holidays The museum is closed, but just wander around the square, pay tribute to the memory and admire the views-it is already worth a visit.
