The monument is nothing special but the surrounding park is great for walking or relaxing. Photo ops are great too.

This monument sits in a very large square and has a lot of significance to the locals. I liked the stone statue on the south (?) side of the column!

Just a standard socialist style monument. Nothing too much to get excited about. As you walk away from the palace and in the general direction of the independence monument you'll pass by here, but it's not worth going out of your way to visit.
