Novodevichy Cemetery

  Luzhnetsky proezd 2      (+7) 915 343 37 76     more than a year ago
This is the Who's Who of Russia. Anyone who was anyone is here. Given the Russian adoration for statues and immense monuments, it is a fascinating place and hunting around for the famous graves is almost as much fun as actually finding them. Chekhov's simple and modest memorial is in stark contrast to the many Soviet megaplinths. Notable graves include Stalin's wife, Mayakovsky, Gogol, Eisenstein, Khrushchev and Yeltsin.





Open 11:00 - 17:00.
Open 09:00 - 19:00 (May - Sept),
09:00 - 17:00 (Oct - Apr).

This visit is a must if you are interested in Russian history and the people who made it. The art work alone is worth the visit. Tombs are almost all decorated with amazing sculpture. I was there on a private Moscow tour with The guide, Oleg, was able to supplement my own knowledge of Russian history making this visit one of the best of the day. I would like to go back. It makes sense to come here from a visit to the State Pushkin Museum since they are on the same Moscow Metro line.
