Red Square holds many historical sites but the Tomb is unique. Lenin was one of the Fathers of the Revolution and is still held in high regard by the Russian people. He died around 1925 and was so revered that Russians came from all over...More

We had seen the queues on previous days so planned accordingly, arriving at 8.15 for its 10am opening. We had about 6 people in front of us. When the line was allowed to move forward we had around 20 in front of us. Without the...More

This is a must do if a rather fleeting experience. Shame the queue is usually around an hour whatever time you join the line. Fascinating to witness an embalmed body and my kids were not freaked out by the experience. It’s quite an incongruous experience...More

Could not believe I visited Lenin's Mausoleum in my last Russia trip. Sad part was they didn't let us in to see the man resting. It was a great experience.

We waited in line for 1.5 hrs on a summer day. Afternoon closed. People at the front kept attempting to cut line, but luckily the staff there could recognise who were in line well and stopped those people. We had to go through security check...More

If you really want to see Lenin's preserved body then be prepared to line up for 2-3 hours in the morning for a couple of minutes in the mausoleum. The tomb is closed in the afternoon.

Well, this was unexpectedly creepy. I was surprised that the way to Lenin is so darken and there is police officer/soldier standing each 3 meters. The entrance looked so creepy that I rather waited for more visitors to join me because I was too scared...More

You won't need a tour merely for Lenin's Mausoleum. The sight itself is free, and there is a long queue outside. Just need to spare time to queue, since the mausoleum inside only would take 5-10 mins, they will not let you... More

Hello it’s only open certain days of the week , if I remember right Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays our guide says the queues form early and you can’t stop inside . You can’t miss it in Red Square.
