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!

Happened to walk through the associated park and saw the Lenin Statue. Yes, the father of the communist movement but, hardly something to make a trip to see. If you are there, take a look but, don't put it on your must see trip agenda.

Well, it is a pretty little park with a statue of Lenin. I understand the communist link but it doesn’t make or break the Park. Nice to have green spaces around a large city for families to get out to for a break.

It is small triangular park offering benches and a bustling plaza overseen by a Lenin statue. One can always feel the diversity and liveliness of Hanoi there.

It was quite a funny thing to see. In front of the Lenin Statue there were loads of children driving little BMW and Mercedes cars. Weird clash of communism with the capitalism in one place.

Stumbled upon this interesting statue of Vladomir Lenin which is set in a nice park with lots of space. Not that I personally was interested but a photo snap and also shows the link with Russia.

Obviously knowing about the relatively recent communist history of Vietnam it is not surprising that Lenin is\was revered but we were not aware of the statue and came across it by chance. It is a good likeness and looks impressive at night.

Surprised, but not really actually, that a Lenin statue was present in the big park by the Military Museum. It is a reminder of the patrimony and heritage of today's Vietnam.

The statue of Vladimir Lenin in a park bearing his name was not on our list of important Hanoi attractions. However, since it was located right across the street from the Hanoi Flag Tower and Military Museum, a quick stroll by for a photo op,...More

Visited the statue of Lenin opposite the Military Museum. It’s a very impressive statue that stands tall above the park. It’s a shame the park was under renovation but it will look great when it’s finished.

It was a surprise to see Lenin statue in Hanoi :) You can expect to see Lenin statues in post-Soviet republics but not in Vietnam. therefore it was a surprise for me. The statue is well preserved. I guess, the father of Russian communists is...More
