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!

Huge statue! Enormous passive park area with some beach seating across the street from the military museum of Hanoi. Large open space probably used for celebrating special outdoor events.

Passed by the statue yesterday on the way to the Military History Museum. Vietnam has been a communist country for many years and they have had a close relationship with Russia for many years and the Lenin statue shows their communist roots.

Set in the middle of the park is this impressive statue of Lenin. It is a nice place to stroll around with many nice flowers. Be careful when crossing the road to get to it!

Yes vietname is a communist country. I am not from a communist country, and never been any of them, so it was an interesting moment to see the statue.

I walked to the Lenin Statue from the Old Quarter. It was a very nice walk but maybe taking transportation may be better!

Good photo opportunity of Lenin. Though we don't share the same ideology, this is part of Vietnam's history. Nearby park is lovely and green and worth a walk through but be prepared as you may be approached by local vendors selling fruits and local wares....More

Whilst some have criticised Lenin in their TA reviews, I disagree because such would be dismissive of his part in history. We can not re-write history, just learn from it. The statue is impressive in usual form. The park in which it sits offers a...More
