Great statue. Including the location in a small park/place next to UlanBator’s “champs elysee”. We joked that this is the only non-zjenish-khan statue in Mongolia ;-)

Interesting statue among many in Ulaanbaatar, because Polo, an Italian, looks vaguely Asian. There is some question if Marco Polo actually spent much time in what is now Mongolia - though he certainly left the best contemporary record of 13th century Asia.

This in some ways just another statue in a public place, however, Marco Polo was a hugely important person in Eastern and Western History so to just come across this in Ulaanbaaaor in Mongolia makes it even more exciting. When you visit Ulaanbaatar, its likely...More

Around the block from the central (Chinggis Khaan) square, it is kind of neat to see this statue to Marco Polo.

Interesting little commemoration to Marco Polo surrounded by a little garden, nice detour if you are walking along Peace Avenue or coming into/out of the adjacent shopping centre.

There is a narrow park/walkway on the south side of the Square that extends east another block. It's a pleasant walk. This is along that route. It's not an attraction in itself, but worth a stop when you walk past. Like others have mentioned, it's...More

A typical statue, but the subject - Marco Polo - is fascinating and important in Mongolia. Polo was possibly the greatest adventurer of all time and ingratiated himself with the Mongolian rulers of China.
