Owner description: 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!

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.
