This vintage photo depicts a long queue to get in a Lenin's Mausoleum [ in Russian 'Мавзолей Ленина' or 'Mavzolei Lenina').  The body or Vladimir Lenin, the Father of the Revolution, was put there after his death in 1924!  If you do wish to visit him you have to go without bags and cameras - no filming inside. Visitors are kept moving, so you only get to spend a few minutes inside the mausoleum before you're hurried out by the guards. #learnrussian #studyrussian #russianlanguag
