We visited this somber WWII cemetery of 186 mass graves of the victims of the siege of Leningrad. It was beautifully done and had music in the background. It was a very sad place. Our guide explained to us that 16/17 year old boys and...More

That was inevitable for us to visit the Piskaryovskoye Memorial Cemetery for the second time after we'd seen it in 2002. It is located to the north from Historical Center of St Petersburg, across the Neva River to the north. Just off the Piskaryovsky Prospekt...More

As everyone said in the other reviews, this is a sad place, a mass grave for over 1/2 million people. Blood red flowers are every where. What added to the atmosphere is the music. It makes your already heavy heart heavier. One wants to scream...More

A simple, but powerful, tribute to the 500,000 people who died in the Nazi siege of Leningrad. There are rows and rows of neatly manicured mounds--mass graves--each of which is simply marked with a stone bearing the year (1942 features prominently). Music is playing in...More

Rather than individual headstones, all you see are mass grave memorials to the 500,000 people who died over the 3 year siege in WWII. It's a simple place with a small museum, an eternal flame, a statue, and of course the graves that line the...More

This was a very eye awakening experience to visit to a historic WWII cemetery. We took the subway, then bus to the site from downtown St. Petersburg. This is an out of the way place that the normal tourist doesn't visit. However upon reaching it,...More
