  • Be careful. If you wanna visit just here (not 18th one), it just coasts 200rubles. check the price in Kicca before you pay
  • Little, peaceful and historical cemetery of Saint Petersburg, just at the entrance of Alexander Nevski monastery. Easy to reach with bus, at Alexander Nevskogo square, or by metro, the station of the same name. Paying one ticket can enter to both sides of the cemetary. Tikhvin have the most famous Russian figures: Dostoevskiy, Tchaikovskiy, Mussorgskiy, Rimsky Korsakov and others. Lazarus also have important names: Leonard Euler, Lomonosov, Agustín de Betancourt, but also have more graves, giving it a very special atmosphere. Once per year, at museum's night, host a an special event at midnight.
  • A beautiful little place home to Tchaikovsky and Dostoevsky amongst many other influential Russian artists.
  • Amazing to visit the famous graves, but it costs money to enter.
  • Pantheon of Russian Art. Dostoevsky and Tchaikovsky were buried here, and many other great people.
