There are many interesting episodes in Tyumen history concerning Lenin. During the war, his body was evacuated to here from Moscow. His sarcophagus arrived in Tyumen on July 10, 1941 and was stored in the building of the agricultural college. In addition, in 1979 the tallest bronze monument honoring Lenin – 15.5 meters – was constructed in Tyumen.Yulia Sulzhenko | @photogella
