This is an estate that is just south of Moscow most famous for it’s association with the convalescence and subsequent final demise of V.I. Lenin, but this estate has a very rich history before the 1917. Well worth a visit. The grounds are quite expansive and beautiful and the houses are a great look into the past. Lenin’s transformed Rolls Royce Silver Ghost is also on view.
There is also the V.I. Lenin museum on the estate which is all about the political aspect of the man but I didn’t go there so I cannot review it(but I will the next time I’m in Moscow).

This was included as part of our guided tour of the Estate. You get to see a large collection of items relating to Lenin's life there, including his library, photos and his office complete with the telephone that he used to keep in touch with the Kremlin. It's interesting up to a point but there's possibly a bit too much detailed information unless you are really interested in Lenin and Soviet history.

Our group had a morning tour of the estate on our first day in Moscow with Exoticca. It's outside the city and initially I had wanted to spend more time on the iconic sights in the centre. However it turned out to be fascinating and provided a great introduction to Lenin.

The estate contains a number of attractive buildings within a parkland setting and it has been preserved as it was during the time that Lenin was here in the last few years of his life. A really surprising highlight was seeing his Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost, modified for Russian conditions and complete with skis and caterpillar tracks!

We visited Lenin's Dacha as part of a guided tour of Moscow. Good job really as the guides here speak Russian and our guide translated everything.
Not huge but is modestly grand in places and gives you a good start to what went on in the past. Nice to see how the other half lived while most of the population at the time were struggling. Lenin's converted Silver Ghost Rolls Royce is a must see.

Great for anyone with an interest in early Soviet history. I wish we’d had time to visit the village with examples of traditional Russian houses with people in costume. We saw Lenin’s converted RollsRoyce with skis and tracks. You need a guide as everything is in Russian

Gorki may not be the fancies museum but it has some genuine gems on display. Plenty of personal artefacts of Vladimir Ilyich including his winter Rolls Royce Silver Ghost with snow tracks.

The tour of the main building will show you the rooms where the indisposed leader of the world proletariat spent the last years of his life. Rooms where he was supposed to dictate his testament (or where Krupskaya cooked it up). The bed in which he died.

There is several buildings so make sure you buy tickets for all of them. The Soviet style monumental building next to the car park is now housing the contents of Lenin's Kremlin office and conference room furniture used both by Lenin and Stalin.

Russian tour guides (you better know Russian) come across as having just stepped out of a time machine straight from 1970s. You may get a disapproving look if you dare to make a comment or ask a question not in line with their version of history.

Typical Palace of Culture of the Soviet era where Lenin lived and worked. It is possible to visit the office of Lenin, furniture, utensils, books (a huge number), you can see, bedroom, kitchen, Lenin's living room, a conference room, the interiors are well preserved and fascinating,
The villa is well kept and is located in a large area where you can walk, suitable for cycling or walking.
The park is located just outside MKAD (outer ring road).
Very interesting the jazz music season
The cost of the entrance ticket to the park is 40 rubles, for museums it is about 600 rubles.
Only few defects, there is no English guide, it is not easy to reach by public transport

Visited Gorki Leninskiy (Го́рки Ле́нинские) also known as Lenins dacha, where he spent time with family and friends from 1918 until his death on January 21st, 1924.

The dacha has recently undergone restoration and is very nice on the outside as well as the inside. Some furniture and items are originals, but most are reproductions. However, that does not take anything away from the overall experience.

Contrary to what one of the previous reviewers have written, the estate and the buildings are not from the communist era, but rather from the 19th century (parts of it even older).

The estate is situated just outside of MKAD (outer ring road).

Very highly recommended to anyone interested in Russian/Soviet history. The park and museums can be visited during the year.

The estate is also home to a museum housing Lenin's office and apartment at the Kremlin, which was relocated by Yeltsin in the 1990's (awaiting restoration). The items in this building are original and many left exactly as they were when Lenin died.

The first connection with this place is that here lived his last years and died Lenin. He choiced this place because of it's beauty, closeness to Moscow and telephone - actual but rare at the early twenties of XX-th century.
This place was an estate of Zinaida Morozova-Reinbot. She was widow of famous Savva Morozov. A brilliant woman educated by herself trying to be worthy of her husband's status and fortune. She was also married to Major of Moscow Reinbot (third marriage) and she built this estate according to last word of fashion her wealth.
Nowadays these interiors likes cinematographers.
A large beautiful park ran wild in last century. Give your attention to the rows of giant poplars in the nearness of estate. Took she care of them too?
