  4. Fantastic article-I always wondered what the Kremlin looked like on the inside.I would not be able to see these things myself but at least I can see them from the pictures posted.

    Concerning Lenin’s body: The majority of Russians wish him to be buried somewhere. Lenin and his wife and siblings wished himself to be cremated. It was Stalin and his followers who came up with the mausoleum/preservation/”cult” idea. Would be better to belatedly follow his wishes and turn the mausoleum into a museum.

      If the wishes of his wife and siblings were for him to be cremated then he should be cremated. Other Russians have had enough say in what to do with his remains for to long.

    It’s really amazing to think how old some of the brickwork in the wall and towers are! It would have all crumbled long ago if not for Russians looking after it and making repairs. Nature takes back what we build so fast once we stop caring for it.

    Excellent post. Reminds me of the Vatican walls but there they had a secret getaway for messengers or the pope through the thick walls – something like a batcave! :)
