We decided to visit the cemetery on a cold December afternoon. It was incredible quiet and peaceful and all of the memorials looked gorgeous covered in snow. We were keen to find Chekhov, Eisenstein, Buglakov, Gogol, Zoya Kosmodemyanskaya and Yeltsin. We were able to find...More

20 minutes by metro from the city center and 10 minutes walking from the metro station. It is huge and to retrieve the burial monuments of the most important people I strongly recommend a guided tour (300 rub per person). Allocate between 30’and 45’. Guided...More

This is the cemetery of so many poets, writers, musicians, scientists, political leaders and, of special interest, numerous cosmonauts. But for Russia, this is rather a modest and humble resting ground or garden-park and not on the list of the most fascinating cemeteries to visit....More

To me this cemetery was as much a final resting spot as a lovely sculpture garden. Designed by Ivan Mashkov and inaugurated in 1898 this is the final resting spot for Boris Yeltsin, Nikita Kruschchev, Raisa Gorbacheva, Anton Chekhov and many others. I would recommend...More

Overall a nice setting for Russian celebs. We particularly liked some of the political celebs like Yeltsin and the composers like Shostakovich and Prokofiev. Worth a trip.

We had a guide to point out gravesites of several Russian notables. The statues were amazing, mostly made of metal (maybe bronze) and depicting the person with something they were known for. Many figures were life sized and one even had his dog nearby. Each...More

We were asked to pay 500 per person when there was no signage showing ticket office or pricing. The security guards pulled my group and this other group into a room when other people were walking in freely. It was ridiculous. We asked other tourists...More

The New Maiden Cemetery and the New Maiden Convent are completely different things, they must have different listings. The cemetery belongs to the state, it has secular rules – obviously you are supposed to behave, but I haven’t seen anyone in shorts or light tops...More
