... given the traffic and multi-laned roads. Seeing St.Basil's 'in the flesh' was a wow moment, despite the greyness and wetness of the day. It was smaller than I'd imagined though.

Lenin's mausoleum is also located in the square in a small granite building. It's free to see Lenin's preserved body in a glass case, but they don't let you linger.
