Paintings, graphic artwork and sculptures inspired by Hà Nội are on display at an exhibition in the capital city.
More than a thousand years of defence and construction have shaped Hà Nội's heroic historical and cultural traditions. Jubilation at the victory has been seen every October 10 since 1954 when thousands of residents with flags and flowers turned out to streets to welcome home the Vietnamese People’s Army to take over the capital from the French occupation forces.
