I f you will move to Irkutsk probably you will see this monument to Lenin. It is located in one of the most big avenue in the city. The monument is nothing of special, maybe just to spend few minutes in front.

As far as statues go, this is a good one! My first day in Irkutsk I remember walking past this statue and thinking "I've arrived. I'm really in Russia". I still feel that way every time I pass it.
