Lenin's Mausoleum Tours

star-5
1 Review
Lenin's Mausoleum
Lenin’s Mausoleum is the current resting place of Vladimir Lenin, the former leader of the Soviet Union. Lenin’s embalmed body has been on display since he passed away in 1924 and his tomb has been visited by millions. Located near Red Square in the center of Moscow, the tomb is a small granite building that features elements derived from ancient mausoleums such as the Step Pyramid in Egypt and the Tomb of Cyrus the Great in Iran.  Although a bit morbid, a visit to Lenin’s Mausoleum is considered a must for visitors to Moscow.

Practical Info

Before getting in line to visit the Mausoleum, you must check any bags and cameras in the Kutayfa tower cloakrooms. No cameras (including camera phones) are allowed inside. The line to enter the Mausoleum forms outside of the Kremlin walls. Once inside, it is quite dark and visitors are kept moving so you will only spend a few minutes inside before being ushered out.
Address: Krasnaya Ploschad (Red Square), Moscow, Russia
Hours: Daily from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.; closed Mondays and Fridays

Red Square and City Ultimate Tour with a Professional Local Guide

Red Square and City Ultimate Tour with a Professional Local Guide

star-5
We will meet you in the hotel and proceed to the Red Square — one of the most iconic Russian sights, filled with history and magnificent beauty. We will see traditional Russian churches with their onion domes and walk inside some of them to see how unique is their architecture, how people pray (some of these churches are still in use!) We will walk through a great glass gallery of a ~130 years old shopping mall GUM and see the famous tomb of the first Russian communist leader — Lenin. And of course — the Saint Basil's cathedral. One of the strangest stories here is about Ivan the Terrible blinding the architects of the cathedral, so they can't repeat the stunning beauty of the masterpiece! We'll walk through a modern wonder of Zaryadie park, see the walls of Kremlin and, optionally, stop for a traditional Russian lunch in one of our favourite Moscow places. We'll have an opportunity to see the change of guards and the Eternal Flame — a memorial to the victims of WWII. And more:)

Red square and Saint Basil's cathedral tour

Red square and Saint Basil's cathedral tour

star-5
St. Basil's Cathedral stood on Red Square long before the first Romanov reigned on the throne. It survived in the Napoleonic War and World War II, could be blown up and even move to Paris. But time spared the Cathedral, and now you can touch a piece of history on your own. Come inside and admire nine small churches hidden under one world famous facade. Take a stroll around Red Square, which has always been considered beautiful. The best merchants, farmers, revolutionaries, soldiers, and numerous Soviet citizens walked here at different times. Imagine how GUM opened its doors for the first time! Listen to the lifestory of the great founder of the Soviet Union Vladimir Lenin and explore the modern residence of president. Highlights: *Enjoy charming colorful "onions" on the top of Saint Basil's Cathedral; *Take the best photos that will make your friends jealous; *Count all the towers of the ancient Kremlin and try to guess what color had the walls before.
