Lenin's greeting on arriving at the Finland Station on April 16, 1917; the statue -- erected in 1926 -- is allegedly on the site where he spoke on top of an armored car.
“Dear Comrades, soldiers, sailors, and workers! I am happy to greet in your persons the victorious Russian revolution, and greet you as the vanguard of the worldwide proletarian army .. . The piratical imperialist war is the beginning of civil war throughout Europe… . The hour is not far distant when at the call…, the peoples will turn their arms against their own capitalist exploiters… . The worldwide Socialist revolution has already dawned… . Any day now the whole of European capitalism may crash. The Russian revolution accomplished by you has prepared the way and opened a new epoch. Long live the worldwide Socialist revolution!”
The original station was razed in 1970, replaced by this functional totalitarian hall. (Although I am no bigger fan of Soviet-moderne than I am of Czarist neo-classicism, they are both way ahead of what Hitler and Mussolini threw up.)
