The flickering lights of the Eiffel Tower, the Grand Canyon with its fantastic views, the Sistine Chapel, which immortalizes the skill of Michelangelo ... It seems that these and many other attractions are created to admire and photograph them. And if there are no problems with the implementation of the first action, then everything is not so simple with the second.

Today, the monument-tomb of V.I. Lenin is no longer subjected to such an influx of visitors as before, but tourists who get there will not be able to take a photo of the leader, since they’ll take pictures inside the building smoking.
