Monument to Lenin

0 vot
After the death of V.I. Ulyanov (Lenin) in 1924, the Soviet People's Commissariat issued a decree to immortalise the memory of the creator of the Soviet Government. The first monuments to Lenin were opened in August 1926. By the beginning of the 1990s, there were about 100 monuments to Lenin at factories, institutions, and on squares and streets throughout Leningrad and its suburbs.

Among the most famous monuments is he Constructivist monument at 55 Bolshoy Avenue of Vasilievsky Island (1930, sculptors Kozlov, A.V. Kryzhanovskaya).

Even after 1991, most monuments to Lenin were kept in place.
