Pyramiden: Lenin

360° panorama

The Lenin bust is pro­bab­ly the nort­hern­most one of its kind, unless the­re is ano­t­her one some­whe­re in tho­se few parts of the Rus­si­an arc­tic which are even fur­ther north. I have been to the old sta­ti­on on Rudolf Island in nort­hern Franz Josef Land and I haven’t seen any Lenin the­re (I may just have mis­sed it, it is qui­te a while ago now). The­re is one in Lon­gye­ar­by­en, but that one is made of plastic, so may­be it does not count … it is stan­ding behind the bar in Kroa, a popu­lar pub. And then, the­re is of cour­se a Lenin in Bar­ents­burg, which is made of gra­ni­te just as the one here in Pyra­mi­den.

Let me know if you know of any Lenin fur­ther north.
