Stop and take in the grandeur of Soviet modernism. The plaza around this statue is grandiose and full of locals enjoying central Bishkek on the weekends.

This place is a must in your album for Bishkek... a nice walk in the large part where you can see the status and forever flying Kyrgyzstan flag...

It really is just a statue, nothing to write home about. I must confess I've seen a few statues in my lifetime so I've seen some pretty impressive ones, maybe this has tainted my view and if I were a statue virgin I would find this particular statue more interesting.
The Museum behind it is amazing so you'll have to pass it to go there.

Bishkek is pretty small and so, you will probably wind up in this area (there are a series of squares within proximity). But this plaza is across street from a bunch of restaurants and so, it's definitely worth walking around here late afternoon/early evening and then walking to grab a nice dinner in the area.

Just walk down beautiful Erkindik itself, which is beautiful with all the greenery and trees. The avenue was first planted by the tsarist-ear Russians in the late 1800s and the street was called Bulvarnaya (Boulevard). It became Dzerzhinsky during Soviet times after one of the secret policemen during Stalin's times (Felix Dzerzhinsky) and then became Erkindik (Freedom in Kyrgyz) after the Soviet Union collapsed.
