The Lenin Square is the best known landmark in Yuhzno. We stayed at a hotel that was opposite the square, and had fun "people watching". The statue of Lenin is the main attraction in the square, but it recently became famous in December 2017, when...More

Located opposite the railway station, Lenin Square is a very ordinary small square with a big statue. A local landmark which is necessary is my guess.

Lenin square is located in downtown area of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk. Together with some other monuments like Monument to the Victims of Neftegorsk Earthquake and others it forms a central city park and relaxing area.
