A lot of interesting old statues from different events related to communist history. Especially Stalin's boots was impressive. There is also a small museum and a movie being shown. Definitely worth a visit!

I enjoyed seeing the statues and the video footage of the communist era. I was disappointed that there were no tee shirts to purchase and the sales memorabilia were very limited.
