The Cascade Monument can be treated as a kind of splendid architectural solution linking the city center with the vast green gardens. It is the best link that the main architect of the capital Yerevan Alexander Tamanyan could have ever created as a juncture between two parts of the city. The whole complex itself is a huge marvelous staircase built on a rock.

The Cascade Monument is situated not far from the Opera House. It designates the 2780 anniversary of the capital city.

 

If you walk up the “huge staircase” of 500 meters height and 50 meters width, you can enjoy the wonderful panorama of the city with the spectacular Opera House, Mount Ararat as well as the view to the whole city.
The deliberately lined trees and the beautifully decorated flowers give a special look to the monument.

Visitors of the Cascade Museum are often unaware that the construction has escalators to lift people up to the top. After reaching the top and enjoying the scenic view, you can walk a bit to a vast green Victory Park with an artificial lake and numerous attractions. Here you can also find the 50 meter tall monument “Mayr Hayastan” (Mother Armenia), which guards Yerevan from above. Inside the pedestal you can see The Mother Armenia Museum of the Ministry of Defense. The largest part of the exhibition space is devoted to the Nagorno-Karabakh war of the 1980-1990.

Before going up the Cascade Monument, just at the bottom, you must pay attention to a statue of the great architect Alexander Tamanyan leaning on his projects.

The Cascade Monument is among the must see places in Yerevan.
