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

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

Just imagine that the city supply was blocked for 900 days. People had to survive on 125-400 gram of bread for a day, but they did not give up. Come and pay tribute...
