What do you know about Lenin? How many pseudonyms did he have? How old he was when he died?

2017 is the anniversary of OCTOBER revolution 1917 to which we prepared a special tour to ¨Lenin´s Hills¨ (Gorki Leninskie) where the Bolsheviks's leader spent the last years of his life.
Why do we commemorate the revolution in November and not in October? What do you know about Lenin as a person and as a leader? How many pseudonyms did he have? How old he was when he died?

Located 30 km outside of Moscow, Gorki Leninskie was a pre-revolutionary estate of Zinaida Morozova, widow of a famous Russian industrialist and theatre buff Savva Morozov. The estate preserved its Art- Nouveau charm of late 19th century.After Revolution it was nationalized and chosen by Lenin as his residence after the assassination attempt by Fanya Kaplin.
Soon after Lenin’s death, the estate was nationalized and turned into museum visited by thousands of Soviet citizens. The situation changed after the dissolution of Soviet Union.
Nowadays this museum complex includes a few places of interest.

The Lenin House-museum is mansion which can boast of impressive interiors. There you will see some personal belongings of Lenin. Outside the mansion, there is a garage which keeps the Lenin’s Rolls Royce. It was converted to run on alcohol because it was much easier to get it during the years of Civil War.

Apart from that you might also visit Kremlin Lenin’s Office and apartment. All the furniture and all the belongings were moved here from the Kremlin Senate building in 1994. You might feel the atmosphere of those days, see the impressive library and private rooms of Vladimir Lenin and Nadezhda Krupskaya, his wife.

Various monuments are scattered around the territory as well as photo exhibitions are regularly held there.

During the tour we will be able to see the estate with garage, the Kremlin apartment and office, walk along enormous territory of the park to see various monuments.
