Grandiose building and statue dedicated to one man. It seems entirely out of place given the history of the country but it does house some interesting statues and displays. Wheelchair ramp available. No pictures allowed inside. Beautiful grounds with statuary.

Only a Communist would have a mausoleum of such grand design. Built in a modern Soviet style - it resembles many Soviet monuments which of course are relics of history. The tens of millions of dollars that went into the building of this monument could...More
