A beautiful cemetery, with the individual memorials spaciously arranged. You'll find the graves, and memorials for, Dostoyevsky, Rimsky-Korsswakov, Musorgsky, Boroding, Tchakovsky and other great Russian artists here.

Here is the burial site of lots of famous residents - especially composers. Advice - go by metro; expect to pay for entry; church is extra; research the great composers' names in Cyrillic before you go (or have a visual-translator on your tablet) - there...More

Enjoyed a brief walk around and seeing Tchaikovsky 's tomb which is large and opulent. Can also see Rimsky Korsakov and Dostoevsky. Nice peaceful place. Just do not think they should charge a fee to visit.

Some more information about the important artists that rest in the cemetery would make the visit better. Still good for a walk. The graves are different to other European countries.

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

On our second visit to St Petersberg, we visited the Tikhvin Cemetery. It contains the graves of notable Russian artists, writers, composers and political leaders. It is adjacent to the Alexander Nevsky Monastery. The two sites can be combined into a single hour visit.

Tikhvin Cemetery is small and cool, with hugely famous Russians like Tchaikovsky and Dostoyevsky buried there. You'll want the metro for this one. Take Metro Line 4 (the Orange line) to Ploschad Alexander Nevsky II. Once you leave the station you can actually see the...More
