Not many Lenins are left, bit this site is just too historical. Ideal quick stop if tour are doing a metro tour anyway, or if you have to be at the Finland station.

Iconic statue of Lenin at Findlandsky station, where he arrived from exile in 1917. Sense of history is palpable here and along with the Spilled Blood, will be my abiding memory of St Petersburg.
