The Eagle Mounument, Pyatigorsk

Monument
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.

  • A sculpture of an Eagle must see. His proud look at the sight of a city lying below, tenacious claws beating snake. Eagle symbol of the city, a symbol of healing. Around the pleasant views. you can come alone or with children, with friends. The place is interesting for all.

  • Concrete sculpture was installed in the spring of 1901 years. Just finished creating a park on Mount Hot. Since then, the picture with an Eagle killing a snake has become an integral part of visiting the resort. The Eagle symbolizes healing force that defeats the snake-personifies the illness.
