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:)

3 Day Private Tour in Moscow with a Local Guide

3 Day Private Tour in Moscow with a Local Guide

star-5
Wow! Three days, that's not nothing, I mean, it's more like something! We will be able to cover a lot. How about the first day we dedicate to the city centre — all the main places, "must-sees" so called. So you can finally bring it down from your shoulders and settle your mind — you are in Moscow, from now on it will become only more interesting. The second day, I think, we should dedicate to the historical center's off-the-beaten-track places: hidden churches, mansions, maybe a couple of the most interesting museums — promise, no boring ones, only the ones I would go to myself. And the third day, finally, everyone is already pleasantly tired a bit, so we will use more of the public transport and go see what's there on the outskirts of the city. And there it's more of a Soviet vibe, so all the greatest Soviet monuments we leave for the final day. This whole tour can be customised up to your wishes, so you are very welcome to express your ideas on what you'd like to see in Moscow:)
