Located in a small grove of trees in an otherwise unassuming park reside a collection of statues and busts from a bypassed era.
Just behind the Semipalatinsk Hotel are several sculptures featuring the Soviet leader, Vladimir Lenin. There are other statues around the park of other Soviet-era figures, but none stand out more prominently than a giant statue of Lenin. The largest of all the relics, Lenin towers over the surrounding trees, a reminder of the power and magnitude of the former Soviet Union.
Know Before You Go
The statues are located directly behind the Semipalatinsk Hotel, which is next to Victory Park. Walk across the street from the park toward the hotel and walk one block. Turn right after the old-Russian-style log building, and you can see Lenin above the trees.
