Additional Information


Ba Dinh Square is located in the center of Hanoi, in the northwest of Hoan Kiem Lake. After the victory of the "August Revolution" in Vietnam in 1945, President Ho Chi Minh announced the establishment of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam. Since then, Ba Ting Plaza has become the political center of Vietnam, just like the position of Tiananmen Square in China. Ba Dinh Square is now a place for gatherings, celebrations and military parades in major national festivals in Vietnam.
