View On The Go's Russia tours

Visiting Lenin’s Mausoleum in Moscow

If you’re anything like me, you wouldn’t pass up the opportunity to see a pickled, ermm… I mean preserved, head of state. Thus I was greatly looking forward to paying Lenin a visit whilst in Moscow.

The experience didn’t disappoint. He lies serenely in the centre of the eerily dark, cold room, complete with machine-gun clad soldiers hurrying people along. I emerged into the sunlight giddy with the thrill of ticking another off the list on my ‘mausoleum world tour’.

Next up: Mao Zedong!

On The Go Tours have a range of tours to Russia, and they include far more than macabre mausoleums!
