It's right on the waterfront but is certainly just a drive by or a brief stop for a photo. There is a small lake right behind it.

Well, it's just a mnument, but on a sunny day it makes a lovely photo with the hills and lake in the background. You can't miss it as it's in the main historical area near the Lenin statue.
