One of the highlights of our trip, the chance to see the resting place of one of the most influential leaders of the twentieth century. The mausoleum is open on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday between 10:00 and 13:00. When it is open Red Square is closed off. Unfortunately no cameras are allowed in side (you have to go through a metal detector and be searched so don't even try). Vladimir Ilyich looks pretty good considering he has been dead for 80 years, it's amazing what you can do with wax and embalming fluid.

Address: Moscow, Russia, 103073
Directions: Under the Kremlin walls oposite GUM.
