Novodevichy Cemetery Tour

join!
We invite you to stroll along the cemetery’s paths with our English-speaking guide, who can reveal the stories which the gravestones of the prominent people tell.
It is like walking through a sculpture park, except that these sculptures are the tombstones of prominent writers, poets, artists, and composers, each grave telling a story about the person buried within.


Some of the well-known personalities were buried here by their own request, while some were reburied in Novodevichy cemetery by the order of the Soviet government. Nicolai Gogol, the famous satirical writer, and the playwright Anton Chekhov were among them. Many renowned composers and singers are also interred here, including Dmitry Shostakovich, Sergey Prokofiev, Feodor Chaliapin and others.
The cemetery became also the final resting place for numerous military and political dignitaries (and their relatives) in the Soviet era, including the First Secretary of the Communist party Nikita Khruschev, the wife of Stalin, Nadezhda Stalin-Allilueva, and the wife of the last head of USSR, Raisa Gorbachev. And one of the most notable non-communists buried at Novodevichy is Boris Yeltsin, the first elected president of democratic Russia. Just 50 feet away is the grave of Mstislav Rostropovich, the renowned cellist and conductor, who died the same week as Yeltsin.
