Cascade in Yerevan, Armenia

Cascade is a huge monument on the hill in Yerevan. Construction started in 70s and never ended. Few years ago they decided to extend it, but progress seem to rather slow (you can see cranes at the picture). Museum on top of Cascade is expected to open in 2010. But nobody knows how financial crisis will influence the schedule.
Initial purpose of the place was a monument. A big one... Very soviet-style way of expressing greatness of the nation - spent a lot of money for covering the hill with concrete.
