“Memorable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

This is probably one of the experiences I shall always remember. The whole process from queueing up to seeing the body is truly memorable. It is a very impressive site.

“Surreal Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

This was a surreal experience. The buildings are fashioned in the Soviet-era style with wide, almost boulevard like walkways. Very stark looking building. A brief journey to another time and place.

“Experience it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

Went with a small group and was awed by the expanse of the mausoleum. It was a cold rainy day and there was no waiting, so we moved quickly to view the body. Very solemn experience. Glad I did it.

“grey day, grey building”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

Mausoleum was closed so we just did an outside visit. I guess it's on the MUST DO list but a driveby would have sufficed.
