“Lives up to its billing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Lenin's Mausoleum - there is a queue but it moves pretty quickly. You can't take mobiles in if they have a camera - so either travel light of leave them at a counter on the corner - 50 roubles to put it there,
Just wandering around and taking in the atmosphere.

“a place where all the people got married”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Three weddings in one day! Crazy people :) Lot of tourists and LENIN. I liked churches nearby and museums. On the left side you will find extremely expensive shops.

“Impressive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

The square was being prepared for a military tattoo but it was still impressive - both at night and in the day. The queue for Lenin's tomb was too long for us.
