  Statue of Mother Armenia in Yerevan

In the picture, you can see a larger picture of Statue of Mother Armenia by night illuminated by projector lights and in the foregroud, a smaller more detailed picture, by day. The View of the city of Yerevan from where the statue is located is breath taking.. You can see the entire city from the top.

The 21 meter Statue of Mother Armenia was constructed in 1950 as the Victory Memorial in memory of the Great Patriotic War. This bronze statue, a heroic figure holding a sword actually occupies the space formerly occupied by a 16.5 meter tall statue of Stalin.

The Statue and its location is perhaps the best place to get a view of the city. Don't miss the opportunity.
