First of all we speak about the new cemetery behind the convent walls (the old cemetery still exists but it is not in a good condition). Also very interesting sculptures and monuments are located here. The most famous Russian and Soviet people are buried here: the first Russian President Boris Yeltsin, the leader of the Communist Party Nikita Khrushchev, the wife of the last Soviet leader Raisa Gorbacheva, famous writers Chekhov, Gogol and Bulgakov, the aircraft constructorsTupolev and Ilyushin, the ballet dancer Ulanova, Soviet singers Shalyapin, Kozlovsky, Utesov, and  famous actors Leonov, Evstigneev, Gurchenko.

The cemetery is open daily from 9 a.m. till 5 p.m.
