The Mother Armenia statue in Gyumri is a smaller replica of the one in Yerevan’s Victory Park. It is the tallest sculpture in the city. The stone blocks en route to the dual staircase that leads up to the monument are each inscribed with the names of, what were, the capital cities of the Soviet Union.
