Fallen Monument Park
A sculpture park of the tossed aside relics of the USSR, from Stalin to a massive Soviet emblem.
With the fall of the USSR, the thousands of Soviet statues were destroyed or dispersed. Some ended up here in the Fallen Monument Park.
Also known as Art Muzeon or Park of the Fallen Heroes, the park has mutilated busts of Stalin, as well as those of Lenin and a statue of Dzerzhinsky, the founder of what became the KGB. There’s a massive Soviet emblem, and clusters of modern art contrasting with the very non-conceptual Communist monuments.
There is a small charge to enter the park. Due to development in the area, its future is currently uncertain.
