Tribute to an amazing man
Dec 2019 • Solo
Pirohov’s mausoleum was a good way to supplement a visit to his estate, just up the road about a 3-5min drive. The small church and churchyard are beautiful and well kept. The staff on site are knowledgeable and friendly though, if you can’t speak the language, you should bring an interpreter.

Inside, Pirohov’s body is preserved and on display. According to the guides, he is the oldest such preserved/embalmed body in the world - older than Lenin’s. Remember: no photos inside the mausoleum!

If you are in Vinnytsia, this site should definitely be on your itinerary along with Pirohov’s estate.

The interesting mausoleum is accessible via a stairway at the back of the church. I also found the church very very beautiful.

I was shocked to see how perfectly Pirogov is preserved. The embalming is fascinating and amazing. It's a very short distance from the museum and definitely worth a visit in any kind of weather because he is indoors.

Creepy.

I don't know what I was expecting to see but this wasn't it. There is a nice tourguide greeting you at the entrance who tells you briefly about Pirogov's history (10 min. max) and then you are let into the masoleum. Like I said. Creepy. He actually looks like a wax doll.

Tribute to Pirogov

This is a small red church where Pirogov's body is laid to rest. The guide was quite good, but spoke only Ukrainian so you would want someone to translate for you. It was just good to walk the grounds and see this great scientist and physician. The walk to the church was about 20-25 minutes from the Estate.

If you are out of things to do

This place will cost you less than $1 so you can't really waste your money here but it is not terribly exciting. Pirogov is a big deal in Vinnytsia, there are a number of statues, streets and a University named after him. So, sure, go take a gander at him...

These is a "tour" every 15-30 minutes which lasts maybe 5-10 minutes. Essentially you get taken down to see Pirogov's preserved body. There were no English speaking staff when I was there and nothing was written in English but it wasn't an issue.

You are not allowed to take pictures inside his masoleum.

Beautiful little church / masoleum. Tiny fee to pay. Basically under the church is the embalmed body of Pirogov. On display behind a big glass window.
