Yerevan Opera Theatre

Details

Opening Time : 10HH:00MM
Closing Time : 18HH:00MM
Duration : 0 hrs 30 min

 

The pride of the Armenian nation, the Opera theatre, is located at the heart of the capital Yerevan. It is not simply a cultural structure, but an architectural masterpiece as well, whose creator is world-renowned Academician-Architect Alexander Tamanyan. It is not a coincidence that Tamanyan was honored first place in 1937 in Paris, during the world architecture exhibition.

Other than that, the theatre was founded during the hardest years of the Armenian people, when the nation was living in dire conditions. However, having an Opera theatre had a higher priority, regardless of the financial difficulties at the time. It is from here that rises every single Armenia’s famous opera piece, ballet, and colors from the stage. The newest cultural symbol of Armenia represents itself to us today in its complete form, with its classical beauty, grandiose stage, amphitheater with more than 1050 seats, as well as with its hallways.

Mother Armenia

Details

Opening Time : 09HH:00MM
Closing Time : 17HH:00MM
Duration : 0 hrs 15 min

 

Mother Armenia is one of the tallest statues in Yerevan. It is 22 meters (approximately 72 feet) high. Overall, the monument together with the statue is 51 meters (approximately 167 feet) high. The statue and the pedestal are made of different materials. The statue is made of hammered copper and the pedestal – of basalt.

The Mother Armenia Statue was placed on the pedestal only five years later, in 1967. Made of hammered copper the statue was designed by sculptor Ara Harutyunyan. Due to its height and the carefully chosen strategic location on a hill the statue seems to guard the Armenian capital.

The Mother Armenia Statue symbolizes peace through strength. With that huge sword in her hands and the shield at her feet she might remind people of such female figures of Armenian history as courageous Sose Mayrig (Sose Mother), who was named so for her maternal concern for the Armenian Youth. It stands for all those women who were not afraid to take up arms and stand by their husbands during the clashes with Turkish troops and Kurdish irregulars.

Next to the monument there is the Grave of the Unknown Soldier. It symbolizes the eternal memory of the war victims.
