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 Reviews & Ratings
It's a pretty cool statue in the heart of Freemont. There's a small informational podium to the side that tells you a lot of the controversial history. It was tagged up when I was there, but I've also heard that taggers do it on purpose to send a message.
That’s a great place to visit, definitely! Piece of history+a very interesting story of the guy who brought him up to Seattle.
Unique tourist attraction in the US. This Lenin statue is often irreverently decorated and always has his hands painted red, symbolizing blood. Near the statue there's a plaque, as well as information about the history of the statue, with photos of some of the more interesting ways he's been dressed up in the past, including an Uncle Sam hat. It's located in a charming, walkable neighborhood with plentiful restaurants, cafes, bars, and shops nearby. Also close to waterfront parks, such as Gas Works, and the Burke Gilman Trail.
This is only a pokestop in pokemon go. It is inconveniently located if you're going out of your way to find it. His hand is red, is it his blood or is he red handed? Read the placard, learn nothing. Read the info nearby on how it got here. Remain confused. That's just how Seattle works.
In the heart of Fremont sits this wonderful Lenin statue from the old Soviet Union days. The statue is about 15 ft tall and only in Fremont could a statue of Lenin & JP Patches peacefully coexist.
