The way the monument was built provides lots of great angles for interesting photo opportunities. It's maybe not the most interesting place you'll visit, but it's still a nice stop.

The monument itself is impressive and reflects the history and the propaganda too. According to the published pictures, it certainly looks beautiful during the day. Unfortunately we visited it at night when it was poorly lit! So, guess how difficult it was to enjoy it!...More

The three huge symbols of the hammer, sickle and writing brush represent the workers, peasant farmers and intellectuals. The monument stands a full 50 meters tall. Incredibly impressive. You can get some great photo shots at sunrise with the monument silhouetted against the rising sun!
