Moscow’s Novodevichy Cemetery

I find cemeteries truly fascinating places to visit. Given a choice between a beautiful monument and an atmospheric cemetery, I would choose the latter any day.

Chekov, Gogol, Boris Yelstin & other famous personalities are buried in the Novodevichy cemetery in Moscow. Unfortunately could not locate their graves because, as elsewhere, everything was in Russian & I could not find a guided tour.

Gravestones here often carry the photo of the deceased. Saw several graves with photos of two men together ( father & son? brothers?).
