Lenin's Mausoleum

Highly recommended
Come early in the morning and be patient! Russian and foreign tourists come to Lenin's Mausoleum in droves every day, standing in front of the red granite façade to take the compulsory souvenir snapshot or stand in line in the long queue. It has been that way ever since the death in 1924 of the father of Communism, whose embalmed body lies in a glass coffin in the basement. The tombs of Stalin and other Soviet figures, such as Gagarin, can be seen at the nearby Kremlin wall.
