Kremlin and Red Square, Moscow - RUSSIA - UNESCO #545

The second card I've got from Moscow shows the massive Kremlin and Red Square as well as Lenin's Mausoleum - where the embalmed body of the historic leader of the Russian Revolution that died in 1924 can still be seen. Thank you very much Anna for this amazing card. This postcard took 13 days to arrive!

UNESCO #545 - Red Square and Lenin's Mausoleum - RUSSIA

Inextricably linked to all the most important historical and political events in Russia since the 13th century, the Kremlin (built between the 14th and 17th centuries by outstanding Russian and foreign architects) was the residence of the Great Prince and also a religious centre. At the foot of its ramparts, on Red Square, St Basil's Basilica is one of the most beautiful Russian Orthodox monuments.
