This is an estate that is just south of Moscow most famous for it’s association with the convalescence and subsequent final demise of V.I. Lenin, but this estate has a very rich history before the 1917. Well worth a visit. The grounds are quite expansive and beautiful and the houses are a great look into the past. Lenin’s transformed Rolls Royce Silver Ghost is also on view. There is also the V.I. Lenin museum on the estate which is all about the political aspect of the man but I didn’t go there so I cannot review it(but I will the next time I’m in Moscow).

Our group had a morning tour of the estate on our first day in Moscow with Exoticca. It's outside the city and initially I had wanted to spend more time on the iconic sights in the centre. However it turned out to be fascinating and provided a great introduction to Lenin. The estate contains a number of attractive buildings within a parkland setting and it has been preserved as it was during the time that Lenin was here in the last few years of his life. A really surprising highlight was seeing his Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost, modified for Russian conditions and complete with skis and caterpillar tracks!

We visited Lenin's Dacha as part of a guided tour of Moscow. Good job really as the guides here speak Russian and our guide translated everything. Not huge but is modestly grand in places and gives you a good start to what went on in the past. Nice to see how the other half lived while most of the population at the time were struggling. Lenin's converted Silver Ghost Rolls Royce is a must see.

Great for anyone with an interest in early Soviet history. I wish we’d had time to visit the village with examples of traditional Russian houses with people in costume. We saw Lenin’s converted RollsRoyce with skis and tracks. You need a guide as everything is in Russian

Gorki may not be the fancies museum but it has some genuine gems on display. Plenty of personal artefacts of Vladimir Ilyich including his winter Rolls Royce Silver Ghost with snow tracks. The tour of the main building will show you the rooms where the indisposed leader of the world proletariat spent the last years of his life. Rooms where he was supposed to dictate his testament (or where Krupskaya cooked it up). The bed in which he died. There is several buildings so make sure you buy tickets for all of them. The Soviet style monumental building next to the car park is now housing the contents of Lenin's Kremlin office and conference room furniture used both by Lenin and Stalin. Russian tour guides (you better know Russian) come across as having just stepped out of a time machine straight from 1970s. You may get a disapproving look if you dare to make a comment or ask a question not in line with their version of history.
