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.

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
