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!

"I loved and admired Lenin because he was a great patriot who liberated his compatriots". So wrote Ho Chi Minh in his memoirs, Ho Chi Minh, who met Lenin when he went to Moscow in 1923, was to go on and introduce Communism to Vietnam, although he did not live to see the end result, the "liberation of his compatriots"...

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.
