The statue of Lenin is impressive in nature, the park it is in is beautiful. The local people use it as a meeting place, lovely trees provide shade in the heat of the day. Nice to sit, relax and watch the locals.

I really don't understand why a statue of such an awful person still stands in a park in Hanoi. Pull it down!!!

if you stay near the area you can get it... These are past times...A reminiscence from the Sovietic Union. Not worth to go there...

Known as 6 Le Nin to locals as its says on the plinth V.I. Le NIn, the Lenin stature is stauted in a little park opposite the war museum and close to other main sites. It does not have the same cachet as in the past as I saw boys playing football in front of it just the other day.

Accidently came across the statue. Dont waste you time looking for it. Surprised that it is still standing. The park was small but pretty.

Opposite the War Museum and on the edge of the embassy area of Ha Noi - interesting in terms of the throwback to another era of the Cold War and the Soviet era that is no more.
