    actually, you’re wrong. :-)

    There was a movie taken in Budapest, Hungary a couple of weeks ago, those pictures you posted are part from it.

    Hungarian article here:

      Actually, he’s going on a journey into a mountain only to return when the perennial Russian dictatorship faces its greatest peril.

    Hi Pulipinty,

    I just wanted to write that this is not something happened in Russia since I recognise Margaret island in Budapest, Hungary
    But you have overtaken me :-)

  4. nix says:

    Lenin was made of plastic foam, because it was made for the new movie “Budapest”, set in and filmed in, well, Budapest (wich is the capital city of Hungary, in Central Europe, for those who might not be aware of it).
    for more info.

    Funny :) It’s actually Budapest not Russia


  6. Vlado says:

    Hahaha I never see Lenin swim before its hilarious!!

  7. white russian says:

    He is still trying to boss everyone around, even in form of a statue. See how he points and gives directions? Someone should break his arm.

  8. Louise says:

    Whether it is Budapest or Moscow, whether it is a stone Lenin or a foam one, the photos are amazing. Beautiful, funny, an illustration of “Sic transit gloria mundi.”

    I had never heard of Margaret Island, and yet here are all my compatiot readers recognizing it! It makes me happy.

    Thank you for the photos. You make my world a bigger place. All I can add is “PHOTOSHOP!”

    Lenin plavil, Lenin plav, Lenin budyet plavat!

    (or something like that – my Russian grammar is khuuyeehhhhvo!

    Thats so awsome, I have stood on that bridge many times.

  11. Pavel says:

    There is a video on youtube with angry Hungarians throwing a soviet star into the Duna from that bridge.

    Lenis says, “the beach is that way.”

  13. marvin says:

    Shameful! I think this is something the good boys and girls of the one and only Notchnoy Dozhor should be called in for. They should be able to put this terrible injustice straight and return Lenin to his rightful place of justly earned glory, pointing his “lodestarish” finger and leading the nations of the world to eternal happiness … to say nothing of the electrifying of the whole planet. Or was it the whole cosmos? Can’t remember.

    Madar chood

    the only difference between putin and lenin is that putin isnt making statues of himself… yet..

    the only difference between V.P and lenin is that V.P. isnt making statues of himself… yet..

  17. Tams says:

    This is Budapest, capitol of Hungary (former communist country)

  18. heh says:

    “Goodbye, Lenin!”
