Vladimir Lenin Monument (June 2012)

Smolensk's impressive Lenin Monument stands on Ploschad Lenina (Lenin Square) and is complemented by the pretty House of Soviets, which is now the regional administration, behind it.  The statue was unveiled in 1967 and stands at nine metres tall in total. It is made out of red granite blocks and depicts Lenin standing on a pedestal wearing a coat blowing against the wind.
