Lenin's tomb reopens to public after renovation

Help

Vladimir Lenin's tomb in Red Square in Moscow has reopened to the public after a major renovation.

The mausoleum closed in 2012 for urgent repairs to fix the building's foundations.

Lenin's embalmed body has been been on display for almost 90 years, following his death in 1924.
