Located opposite the railway station, Lenin Square is a very ordinary small square with a big statue. A local landmark which is necessary is my guess.

There is really not much to say except a rather huge statue of Lenin facing eastward to the imaginatively named administration building where there are two murals in socialist realism style.

Lenin square is located in downtown area of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk. Together with some other monuments like Monument to the Victims of Neftegorsk Earthquake and others it forms a central city park and relaxing area.

The Lenin square is nothing else then a normal square that you will find in many cities. Traffic, a few bars, some shops and a statue. There is not a lot of grandeur to see or experience. The city is a bit worn out anyway.
