This Lenin statue in a park at Nguyen Thai Hoc avenue is one of the few remains I saw of a recent communist past here in Vietnam.

Now it seems Sony neon advertising are prefered to those old sovietic symbols... the signs of the times!

Didn't really expect to see a statue of Lenin but he had a great influence on Ho Chi Minh so it makes sense that this would be here.

A nice green park with a big square and the Lenin Statue. The park is next to Ho Chi Ming Mausoleum. Local kids are playing football, badminton or meeting up with their friends.

Beautiful square to celebrate his influence on the region but not much around it. A drive by is probably fine

Nice park to relax at the end of the afternoon. Watching the children drive their cars and the adolescence skate/football and the elderly play badminton next to the very busy street.

A statue of a well respected figure in Vietnamese history. There's not much to it really, but you will undoubtedly spot this on your journeys through Hanoi.

This statue is straight across the road from the entrance to the Military History Museum and just down the road from the main square. If you are planning on going to this museum then this statue is worth seeing. There is no information regarding this statue. this little area is used for local people to exercise.

A gentle reminder of the support given to the people of Vietnam by the Soviet Union in their struggle for freedom.

Let me tell you that you should wake up early in the morning and visit this place. You'll see local people gather there to do exercise like a habit as well as enjoy peaceful and quiet atmosphere. In front of the statue is Vietnam Military History Museum and you should visit this place. After that, from the museum, you can... More
