In Moscow we visited Lenin’s mausoleum where he was laid to rest. We had to undergo serious security checks, and we were not allowed to take pictures. This showed us that Lenin received the upmost respect, even in death. Seeing Lenin’s body was overwhelming as we have never seen such an important historical figure up close.
After seeing Lenin’s body we visited the Kremlin, where Natalya and Nina showed us around. We viewed several beautiful buildings and went into a cathedral. The cathedral was very small, but the artwork and detail was stunning.
The Red Army museum was fascinating. It had over 1million items, Veronica our museum guide had done her thesis in the siege of Leningrad so she was very informative so it was very interesting. There were lots of old tanks and planes from the old soviet era and there were 28000 flags in the museum.
