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.
