A smiling communist... Nonsense!
Mar 2021
Another relic of Russia's Soviet past. Moscow needs it today like a fish needs a bicycle.
I was there in the middle of March, in the daytime. There was a lot of snow everywhere and rather frosty. This gray "sun" was smiling among honking cars and racing pedestrians and surely felt uneasy both about the weather and its own uselessness.
This granddad may be very respected in Vietnam but he did absolutely nothing for Moscow so what the heck he's doing here?! Couldn't we have chosen anyone more worthy for a monument? Don't we have OUR OWN heroes?
Not recommended!

Ugly vestige
May 2018 • Solo
Completely unintelligible and inappropriate monument. Neither Ho Chi Minh himself nor the Vietnamese had anything to do with this area and do not have. Well, except that more than a kilometer from the monument there is a University hostel, in which individual representatives of this nationality could live from time to time. It is known that the Communist leader of Vietnam himself was categorically against the installation of monuments to him. In addition, the solar theme of the monument does not match with Vietnamese mythology and history. Nevertheless, the sculptor who created this ugly vestige of the Communist era, - the Vietnamese government awarded him with some order.

An interesting monument
Jul 2016 • Solo
There's quite a few monuments to foreign leaders in Moscow. Most of them are heritage from Soviet times and the same is true for the Monument to Ho Chi Minh.
Soviet Union and Vietnam have had good relations for several decades now.
One landmark of these relations is this monument, located next to metro Akademicheskaya.
