This is a large square located in downtown Zaporizhzhya. It is a tribute to Vladimir Lenin, who is basically the founder of modern socialism. He led the political revolution in 1917 that transformed Russia from the control of the czars to that of the socialist party. (a little history lesson, free of charge)
Many people here in the Ukriane still believe in the socialist economy, mainly due to the lack of jobs under the current democracy.
Despite any political views, the entire park and monument are quite spectacular.
