In Red Square you will want to see Lenin's tomb, St Basil's Church, and there is another beautiful church in the back right corner (I will provide a photo). For a quick tid bit, Lenin's body is in the tomb and I just missed the viewing hours for it. I got there at around 5:00 pm, so make sure you are there well before that to be able to view his body. Make sure to take your time with these sights and really "soak" in the history. If you have time, stop and chat with the vendors, you may get a great souvenir. I bought this beautiful water color painting, so keep your eyes peeled. There is a beautiful indoor mall to the left of St Basil's church, you may want to poke your head in there she the "Russian feel" for a mall. The architecture is wonderful. As always bring cameras and videos. There are so many wonderful sights and sounds that you may want to capture..
