Monument to the People's Heroes

Monument in The Bund & People's Square

Up from Huángpǔ Park, this anachronistic monument stands above the Bund History Museum. Its socialist realism friezes depict the postwar triumphs of communism in Shànghǎi. Come here early in the morning for excellent photo ops as locals perform taichi to the backdrop of Pǔdōng's skyline.
