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!

Soviet and skateboarders

You can't miss this statue, over the road from the Military museum. A great place for skateboarders and time to reflect on the soviet history....

The ode to Comrade Lenin (in the form of a towering statue) is located in a smallish, well-maintained triangular city park across the street from the Military Museum and the landmark Flag Tower of the Old Citadel, so it is an easy spot to see if you're visiting these attractions. It is a popular place for locals, and you can... More

A nice little park to watch locals, older people playing chess; younger people playing skaterboard, bicycles; kids playing mini car/bike. Came during new year afternoon, and the place was decorated with flowers and people were dressed up nicely for photos here. Nice place to past the time

We didn't intend to visit the statue, and it's not really worth wandering out of your way for, however if you are going between the HL Prison and Ho Chi Minh's Mausoleum, then you'll come across it on the way. When we passed there was nobody in the park except for the local skater boys using Lenin and his surroundings... More

This is a statue of Lenin in a nice little park. It is worth having a brief look at whilst you are passing, as it is close to a lot of the other things you might be looking at anyway (the Ho Chi Minh memorial and the government buildings), but probably not worth a special trip just to see this...

This review is quite late. The Lenin Statue stands at the Lenin Park just opposite the Hanoi Flag Tower. The huge statue provides a good photo opportunity to visitors but there is nothing much to see or do around the area.

Very large stature that you can't miss. Worth a close look for 5 minutes to absorb the detail - but just a statue. Not much more to say really! Except go for a stroll through the park it's at the edge of. It's pretty.

Visiting the mausoleum and saw the statue. Lenin looks imposing but take a quick peak, you'll only be here to look at something else and will only take a few minutes of your time

This would also be the first statue of Lenin I ever seen. If your walking from the Hoa Lo Prison to the mausoleum this is right along your route which is good, but, theres no plaque saying anything about how old it is, who put it there, etc, which is bad. Other than that, the garden and layout around it... More

It's just a statue of Lenin, no big whoop. It's a common fixture in a communist country. The park area around it is nice and spacious and it's right across the road from the military museum, so you might as well check it out if you're passing by.
