Lenin made it clear that when he died he did not want any tributes or special events held in his honor. They didn't pay him much attention. Visit his corpse is an almost surreal experience, especially for the level of ceremony that imprinted at the sight. You can only visit it about 3 hours a day, strictly forbidden to enter with bags, cameras or mobiles, and they demand absolute silence and even the guards will call you out for having your hands in your pockets. One comes out of the tomb with the impression of having seen the body of a religious figure.
