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!

Obviously knowing about the relatively recent communist history of Vietnam it is not surprising that Lenin is\was revered but we were not aware of the statue and came across it by chance. It is a good likeness and looks impressive at night.

Surprised, but not really actually, that a Lenin statue was present in the big park by the Military Museum. It is a reminder of the patrimony and heritage of today's Vietnam.

Visited the statue of Lenin opposite the Military Museum. It’s a very impressive statue that stands tall above the park. It’s a shame the park was under renovation but it will look great when it’s finished.

Huge statue! Enormous passive park area with some beach seating across the street from the military museum of Hanoi. Large open space probably used for celebrating special outdoor events.

Passed by the statue yesterday on the way to the Military History Museum. Vietnam has been a communist country for many years and they have had a close relationship with Russia for many years and the Lenin statue shows their communist roots.

Set in the middle of the park is this impressive statue of Lenin. It is a nice place to stroll around with many nice flowers. Be careful when crossing the road to get to it!

It's just a statute of Lenin, that's all. But it's a reminder of the influence that Russia had on Vietnam.
