Karl Marx feels well in Uzhgorod (PHOTOS)

The inconspicuous obelisk that now is located on Egan square in Uzhgorod (former Karl Marx square) is still decorated with an image of German philosopher Karl Marx. The whole teaching was named after him, and the book "Capital" criticizing capitalism is still read and discussed.

The founder of Marxism-Leninism feels good in a cozy corner of the regional center of Transcarpathia. However, the bed, the obelisk stands on, is a bit untidy, there are some scribbles on the stone foundation, and the image has darkened with time. Probably, Marx managed to last so long because the bas relief is placed too high to reach or maybe for some other reason.

Soviet-era monuments in Uzhgorod have been long ago dismantled, streets and squares have been renamed. But Karl Marx remains...

Згоден,що памятник треба залишити в спокої.Але стан невеличкого скверика не то що *немного неопрятна* а просто ужасний,Варто би оприлюднити призвіща високопоставлених чиновників(на
пенсії і діючих)які проживають у гарних будинках на цій площі ,Хіба цій елітній інтелігенції не соромно !!!!!
