Ba Dinh Square
In addition to the stilt house, Ba Dinh Square is also the largest place in the country. Located on Hung Vuong street, in front of the Tomb.
Ba Dinh Square has a large campus with many large grass boxes that represent the mats spread across the communal house in ancient Vietnamese villages, interspersed with a 1.4 m wide walkway. In the middle of Square is the national flagpole.
Previously, the Square was an area within the Imperial Citadel of Thang Long. In 1894, when occupying Hanoi, the French colonialists built a small flower garden called Round Square or Pugininer Square.
After the August Revolution of 1945, the Round Square was named Ba Dinh Flower Garden or Ba Dinh Square. Here, on September 2, 1945, the Provisional Revolutionary Government of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam introduced the nation.
President Ho Chi Minh read the Declaration of Independence giving birth to the Democratic Republic of Vietnam. During the French temporary occupation of Hanoi (1947-1954), the French Governor General changed the square name to Rose Garden. In 1954, our army took over the capital and this place was again given the name Ba Dinh Square.
