Aeolian Harp, Pyatigorsk

(4.8/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
Nestled among lush greenery atop a hill overlooking the town, Aeolian Harp plays ethereal melodies and offers views of the areas below. Built in 1831, this gazebo structure once contained a real instrument that emitted harmonic frequencies when wind would blow. Today the music still plays, but it's produced by modern means independent of the wind. The pavilion also features atmospheric lighting. Dress warmly, as it can get cool at the site. Using our custom trip planner, Pyatigorsk attractions like Aeolian Harp can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Every year in our trip on a CMS we visit Pyatigorsk and Jeolovu harp. With this location offers stunning views of the city. It's nice to sit on a bench and enjoy the city.

  • Gorgeous views from the top! Silence, stillness and wind! Very beautiful! In 1972 at the dome gazebo is identified by a unique mechanism-music device, controlled by the wind. It is a pity to us has not survived in 2008 installed radio equipment, which plays on the wind! Were in the sunny, cloudless weather, good view of Mount Elbrus and the entire Pyatigorsk!

  • They say that the wind flying through this arch, creates a musical sound:-) Wind sound not heard sounds from the speakers but sound nice, to create an atmosphere. This is an observation deck with a beautiful view of the city.
