Mausoleum and resting place of the leader of the Bolshevik Revolution, essential to know the history of Communism in Russia.
The mausoleum was built on the orders of the Soviet Government after his death in 1924 and his embalmed body exposed to the public since then, except on rare occasions in wartime.
The exhibition, located just outside the walls of the Kremlin on Red Square in Moscow for 80 years and has not experienced any work, have been renovated because the tomb was starting to lean. It was closed in September last year due to a “serious distortion” of marble and granite building caused by tilting their foundations because of soil erosion.
It is rumored that soon could be moved to the city of St. Petersburg, the reason is that according to a recent survey by the Public Opinion Fund, 61% of Russians are in favor of Lenin rest underground in a graveyard, 5% more than a year ago; while 25% want to continue in place.
