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!

Statue set in a smallish park. In an area where’s there’s plenty of attractions so in that respect worth seeing if passing by.

The park is small but well manicured for the most part. Statue is nothing to write home about. One of the few places in world where there's still a tribute to this dictator of days past. You can see it when driving by the military...More

This statue of Lenin stands in a small park opposite the Vietnam History Military Museum. Worth a stop if you are in the area.

This statue occupies a small triangular garden and perhaps synonymous with how history has moved on. Lenin at one time a master for the communist cause looks down forlorn and perhaps struggles for relevance as the signs of capitalism rumble past him. There were no...More

A big statue in the middle of a small park, as a proclamation for communism. Worth a look if you are there, and is a hop on hop off bus stop, but not worth it alone, unless you are on some type of pilgramige.

Lenit Statute is located in central Hanoi in the park with the same name and dedicated to the Russian socialist leader whose ideology is still the practice in Vietnam politics. The statue itself is not very significant, so if you are passing by or taking...More

This monument no doubt signifies the close relationship between Vietnam and the former Soviet Union. Not so common to see statues of Lenin these days as so many have been pulled down. A fitting tribute to an elder statesman regardless of politics.

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.
