Tour of Gorki - Lenin's last place of residence

Updated: Apr 12

Gorki (20 km from the Moscow Ring Road) became a place of worship and pilgrimage for all communists around the world in the 20th century. Vladimir Lenin spent his last years in this estate.

After the revolution most of the private estates were left by their owners and remained empty and abandoned, and bolsheviks could just pick any to move in. Lenin chose Gorki because of its beauty, proximity to Moscow and, most importantly, a telephone - still a rare thing in the 1920ss.

During the tour we will see: 1. The main house where Lenin and his wife moved to after the Soviet leader's brain stroke. It is not only historically fascinating, but also visually attractive - its previous owners had good taste. 2. A reproduced interior of Lenin's apartment in the Kremlin. In 1993 this Moscow apartment-museum was closed for visitors, and all its exhibits and furniture were moved here, to Gorki. 3. Lenin's snowmobile - a Rolls-Royce on skies. 4. Deeply emotional "The Leader's Funerals" granite monument. 5. A collection of all the possible varieties of Lenin's statues.

Participation: 3200 RUB including transportation from one of the metro stations and back. Find out the meeting point information by email tips@moscowliving.org.
