Visited Moscow at the start of our river cruise to St Petersburg and Lenin's tomb was on my hit list of must sees. The tour guide did everything to put us off going, even saying it was closed! The tomb is only open 9 - 1pm. We arrived at 12.45 and there was no queue at all and just walked in. We were not searched and took our bags in with us. We had ample time in there and weren't rushed at all. I found the experience most amazing and weird! There is talk that Lenin will shortly be buried in St Petersburg so don't miss the opportunity to see him if you get it. You can't take photos but there are masses of them on the website.
