Missing Lenin? some bas-reliefs in Central Moscow
A quarter-century after the end of the Soviet Union, several Lenin statues and bas-reliefs stand proudly in public squares and streets in Moscow. Even Lenin himself still lies in a glass coffin in a granite mausoleum in Red Square.
Moscow has generally preserved its Communist-era monuments: even the few that were demolished in August 1991 were restored and now are displayed in a sculpture garden in the city center, the Muzeon Park of Arts.
The photos below show some bas-reliefs and statues in Moscow. They have been taken in Central Moscow in Tverskaya street, Bolshaya Nikitskaya street, VDNKH (Exhibition of Achievements of National Economy) and Malaya Dmitrovka street. These photos were taken in April 2017.
