Relics from the days of Communism, once we found the place, identified by the bizarre sight of Lenin’s boots on a pedestal (no other signage at all) you are dragged into the stark, sculpture of the communist era. Lots of strong faces and raised arms, hands clasped in Friendship. A bleak place and a reminder of what was going on until only very recently. A reminder for me because I was in the military when all this was going on. So here are the pictures, and some words will follow I am sure.
