Memento Park revisted

I just had to go back to this fascinating park today, to identify the things I had seen before and to see what I had missed. It was even a bit sunny and not as bitterly cold this time, so was a much more pleasant experience. My husband also managed to find a guide book that has some interesting stories about the monuments.

This is the entrance with Stalin's boots off in the distance.

The entrance is imposing, and I would imagine that seeing it, and those enormous boots, for real, would be doubly imposing. An excellent sharp image to give a real sense of the place. VV
