  • An unusual place to visit but one not to be missed if you love your Classical music. Tchaikovsky's grave is very opulent. It snowed the day we went. Very beautiful. 
  • Where else can you see the graves of four classical composers buried so close together? The great and the good of the city are buried here in enormous ornate tombs 
  • The incredible energy of the place. Each Tomb as a work of art. Don't miss the chance to visit this place

  • 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.
