Petit Futé's opinion on LENIN MAUSOLEUM

Vintage plate 2020

Perhaps you saw some statues of Lenin when you first went to Moscow? Well, you will have the opportunity to see that man is smaller than life size. All the more so as the famous intellectual, revolutionary and leader, already not tall during his lifetime (1.65 m), shrank during his mummification. The result is therefore not so impressive and it is often a vague impression of disappointment that one feels at the end of this agonizing journey that constitutes a visit to the mausoleum. We still recommend this pilgrimage, even though it has not been a tradition since the late 1980s, because it is captivating to have access to this piece of world history, preserved after a century of morbid fascination.

The mausoleum itself has a history: it dates back to 1929 and was built quickly after nearly half a million Soviet citizens rushed to pay their respects to the remains of the great (little) man, a week after the start of his exhibition to the general public in a temporary structure. Lenin had to share his 8-year-old spot with another even smaller tall man (1.62 m), Stalin, before he was driven out during the desalinization process. Since then, Lenin has been alone once again to see the nostalgic, fanatics, mocking people. Nowadays, there is more and more talk about the possibility of paying him a last trip to St. Petersburg in the family vault: a solution that is asked for by many, but never voted for.

Il ne faut pas avoir peur de faire la queue pour visiter ce tombeau mythique. Le Mausolée de Lénine se trouve non loin du mur du Kremlin et peut être visité indépendamment du reste. Vous ne pouvez pas rester longtemps à regarder le corps enbaumé de Lénine. Le corps paraît être celui d'un mannequin de cire. Les gardes vous demandent de circuler, sans agressivité. Tout autour du mausolée, sont enterrés des dignitaires importants du régime communiste.
