Lenin's Mausoleum (Russian: Мавзоле́й Ле́нина, tr. Mavzoléy Lénina, IPA: [məvzɐˈlʲej ˈlʲenʲɪnə]), also known as Lenin's Tomb, situated in Red Square in the center of Moscow, is a mausoleum that currently serves as the resting place of Soviet leader Vladimir Lenin. His preserved body has been on public display there since shortly after his death in 1924, with rare exceptions in wartime. Aleksey Shchusev's diminutive but monumental granite structure incorporates some elements from ancient mausoleums, such as the Step Pyramid, the Tomb of Cyrus the Great and, to some degree, Temple of the Inscriptions.

    I believe it's a must see when you are in Moscow. Well, sincerely, all the place is dark and little scary. We visited the Mausoleum with my wife in September and we walked alone. Really interesting place, worth the visit.

    Went there on my first visit to Moscow, and it was a legendary experience. The hall was so grand, it could've been a part of a palace and it would still stand out. Lenin was the main attraction though, so I, of course, walked up close to see his face. However, he suddenly came back to life, hopped out of his grave, stared at me, dead in the eye. I remember every single word he said to me, still to this day. "Tovarishch, we will establish real communism today, you and me. We will remove the imperialist and capitalist scum from this glorious nation, and-- oh cyka I'm not supposed to be alive." With that, he jumped back into the grave instantaneously and returned to his gracious slumber. And this is the story of the first time I took shrooms.

    Really cool to see, but make sure you're there early or when it isn't crowded. You don't have a lot of time to look at Lenin and you'll be emphatically urged along by heavily armed sentries if you pause, but it's still pretty cool to say you've seen Lenin.

    El mausoleo de Lenin en Moscú... Si te gusta la historia de este país debes visitarlo y ver las estatuas de los intelectuales que viajaron con Lenin de regreso a Moscú y entender porque es tan importante para los rusos la conservación del cuerpo de Lenin... De antemano debes llegar muy temprano o someterte a una fila talvez inmensa y una vez adentro es oscuro y sobretodo es sagrado... Para los rusos es muy importante que guardes el debido respeto al entrar a este sitio y se lo tomaran muy a mal si no te comportas a la altura...
