A Monument to V.I. Lenin

        During the Soviet period of Russian history there was a monument to Lenin on the central square of each city or settlement. The first monument to the leader of world proletariat was unveiled in Arkhangelsk already back in 1924. Bronze sculptures stood also in parks and on entrances of plants. However, this one was installed on the central square of the city only on August 10, 1988, and Arkhangelsk became one of the last cities in the USSR to install a monument to Lenin. Before this there was a fountain on the square in front of the Regional Committee of the CPSU. Lenin is shown as an orator. The bronze figure is installed on the granite pedestal on which you can see V.I. Lenin’s signature.
