Statue Of Lenin - Review
There are a lot of statues of Lenin. This one is a particularly good one - an evocative 5 metres tall bronze sculpture. IT was sculpted by a Bulgarian, Emil Venkov, for Czechoslovakia. After the Velvet Revolution, an english teacher, Lewis Carpenter, found the statue in a scrapyard, bought it and transported it to Seattle. Located in the quirky Fremont neighborhood, the statue is sometimes the subject of jokes. Once it was dressed up as John Lennon, at other times it was dressed in drag or as a clown.

Statue Of Lenin, Seattle Reviews
Equal parts cool and unusual. Dope history to it and takes next to no time at all to see, take in, and be on your way to embrace more of the wonderful weirdness that is Fremont.
This is the greatest thing to ever be built on American soil. And the 2nd best thing in the world (behind The Cathedral of Vasily the Blessed, if course!) Very pretty. The vandalism of this statue is a disgrace to the almighty Vladimir Lenin. Even the Americans can’t resist our communist ways.
The blood on his hands truly speaks volumes to the atrocities Russia had endured, and is still enduring. His steely gaze watched over the street as if to say, "You are safe now, comrade." Da, we are safe now.
Cool statue with some interesting history which can be found to the right of the statue. Located in a quite busy intersection so be careful when trying to get the whole statue in a picture (and try not to be one of those annoying tourists who isn’t mindful of the rules). Be sure to check out the Fremont Troll as it’s right around the corner.
Kinda neat. Not sure why people keep spray painting him. Neat bit of weird history tho.
