Lenin's Mausoleum Is Temporarily Closed
Lenin's Mausoleum in Moscow, Russia

Lenin's Mausoleum located on the Red Square will be closed for routine maintenance March 1-10. The Kremlin Wall Necropolis will not also be available in these days. 

      Biochemical works are carried out regularly since the creation of the Mausoleum - once a year and a half. Modern technologies allow to keep Lenin's body for years. It is placed in a transparent sarcophagus, which was made according to drawings of engineer Kurochkin, a creator of the ruby glass stars on the towers of the Kremlin.

      Lenin's Mausoleum is closed several times a year: during the holidays, when mass public events take place on the Red Square. 

      The biography of Vladimir Lenin is here.
