About
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!

it was fairly unusual to see a statue such as this, one of the most important figures in the history of communism. it's very well done, he looks stately and confident. it's in a nice park across from a beautiful flag tower. we saw it on our way to the HCM Mausoleum. it's a cool statue but really, it's just a statue. snap a pic and you're done!

We love seeing communist statues and this is one of the few Lenin’s left. Well worth a visit in Hanoi. He is opposite the military history museum and has a nice park around him.

Lenin's Park in Hanoi is empty of visitors. Like other reviewers have pointed out, the world has moved on even whilst Vietnam remains officially a communist country. You wouldn't know it.

Hopefully comrade VI Lenin is watching with pride.

His park his park is kept clean and tidy. Which is nice.

There aren't many places in the world anymore where you can find a statue of Lenin out in the open. Most of them elsewhere have been removed and are in storage or have been melted down. A reminder that despite all outward appearances, Vietnam remains a communist country.

Knowing Russia's involvement with North Vietnam. it was only appropriate to pay a visit to Lenin's statue which is located opposite the museum where a Mig 21 fighter jet is located. The site is spacious and respectful indicating acknowledgement of the long relationship between the two communist countries. Worth a visit if you have time

This is a fairly normal statue of Lenin, located in a park not far from the Flag Tower. It was a very hot day in July when we visited so there were few people in the vicinity. Nothing too special about the statue.

Great for a stroll in the park. The wide space in front of the statue is amazing for many kinds of activities, like playing badminton or skate boarding.

Considering the influence of Lenin on President Ho Chi Minh you could easily walk past this statue. You are more likely to notice the footballers or skateboarders playing in the square in front of it. If at the military museum it is directly opposite. Take a photo then move on.

Lenin led the first workers state and fought to put an end to imperialism and exploitation world-wide. While his revolution was first partially reversed by Stalin and then finally by Gorbachev/Yeltsin, he continues to inspire many throughout the world. Unfortunately, there are not many statues of Lenin left. I am glad this one stands in the capital of a country that managed to defeat the French and American colonial and anti-communist forces and achieve national independence and limited freedom from capitalist exploitation.

We are lovers of all things statues/monuments/sculptures they tell you so much about the place you are visiting. This is our first time we have seen a monument to one of the Communist founders, (the man is known but not seen). He is located in a small park, that is nice to take a break. A piccie opportunity as well.
