  • EN: (English follows below) a monument to the Soviet but more exactly to the Chinese. The Chinese built and continue to live and work on the site adjoining barracks. They are still working on some finishes to finish. This monument is huge, massive, in honor of the first president of the country. The high arrow concrete overlooking this mausoleum is visible from almost anywhere in the city. Inquire about the days and times of visits because the monument is not always open. The ticket price of entry gives right to visit all of the mausoleum, including the coffin of the late president in a round room where silence is the rule. The visit can be done with a guide included in the price of useful to better appreciate this visit. # in: A kind of soviet monument but more exactly chinese style.
