В детстве, я часто бывал на этом мемориальном кладбище... Раньше было принято, каждое 9 мая приходить с букетом гвоздик и возлагать на одну из братских могил цветы. Прошло много лет, и теперь я решил ... read more »As a child, I often visited on this Memorial Cemetery. It used to be accepted, every 9 may come with a bouquet of carnations and hold one of the mass graves. Many years have passed, and now I have decided to bring their children here as once my parents drove me here. At the entrance to the Memorial Cemetery arranged small free Museum, where a brief, but very clearly-on stands, learn about the history of the blockade of the city of Nazi troops in 1941-1944 g. that awaited in the case of the taking of Leningrad by the troops of the Fuhrer. What was the norm of bread when in homes has been turned off water supply, electricity, central heating. That the Piskarëvskom Memorial Cemetery during the years of the embargo had been buried more than 400 thousand people killed by shelling and bombing, and hunger. And see the Chronicle of those years. Stands logged on to the cemetery, you can see the eternal flame and hear from speakers mourning music. Here everything sedately and nobly trimmed lawns, manicured grave, and on plates with numbers, assuming the date of burial in mass graves, lie the loaves of bread, is a tribute, from people, because during the siege in 1941 year norm of bread does not exceed 150 grams per day, it is very touching. On some boards you can see a couple pečenûšek ... It is necessary to realize that meant at the time, crumbs of food for people vyživavših under daily shelling and bombëžkami, in a cold unheated homes without light and water, when hunger gripped the whole body. Despite the gravity of experiences, here is still very light and planted apple trees make dispel sad thoughts. On the Memorial are engraved lovely memory verses, subtly conveying all the bravery and courage of Leningrad inhabitants who defended his city. A grieving mother motherland is an integral part of the soul of this place. In addition, there is a pond in which white swans guys swim, surrounded by ducks. Despite the murky water, seen as the shoals is interspersed with expanses of water surface. Perhaps such great looks man will be able to get one of these. Word is the place where you want to walk, Strolling among burial mounds, in silence, under quiet mourning music that isn't stupid, but ... Here you realize that life's troubles is a trifle compared to what people experienced in the war.show original
