The Eagle Mounument, Pyatigorsk

4.5
On a hill above town, The Eagle Mounument stands as a symbol of the resort and glorifies the Caucasus' abundance of mineral water. According to legend, the eagle was bitten by a snake and about to die; it managed to get under a stream of the mountain water, which eliminated the poison from its blood. This statue was erected in 1901 for the resort's 100th anniversary. Since then, the authorities have replaced it several times, as the eagle kept disappearing. Climb along a wooded path to reach the site, which also offers superb views of the areas below.

  • Even though some of the stairs are old, you can will enjoy the walk there. With a good view of the city. You can also climb higher past the eagle to see another view of the other city part.  more »
  • In Pyatigorsk were first. Of course, everyone really enjoyed it. Nature, greenery, landscaping, would like to mention the lighting. Almost any time of the day you can enjoy these beauties. The climate is wonderful

  • In fact everyone who visits Pyatigorsk are obliged to be photographed against the backdrop of the Eagle. We were unlucky with the weather! But the pictures were still valid.
