Aici zace Lenin (Here Lies Lenin)

Here lies Lenin
Out of the perimeter of Mogosoaia palace, close to the exterior wall, there lie, totally forgotten, two monumental bronze statues: Dr. Petru Groza, the prime minister of the first comunist governement and Lenin. The huge, 7 m heigh, Lenin statue was subject of popular anger during the 1989 revolution. People tied it with ropes and tried, unsuccesfully to put it down. Then, a crane was brought to do the job, still couldn't manage. Finally, a megacrane ended 41 years of comunism in Romania.
