Visit to Tikhvinsky Cemetery by Nevsky Lavra. The cemetery of Our Lady of Tikhvin was founded in 1823 in St. Petersburg near Alexander Nevsky Lavra, with many figures from Russian art, artists, and famous writers buried here. Some of them are very well known, including the composers Tchaikovsky, Glinka, and Mussorgsky; the sculptor Klodt; the historian Karamzin; the fabulist Krilov; and the poet Zhukovsky. Fyodor Dostoevsky, one of the most renowned Russian writers, is also buried here. The funerary monument was erected in 1883 by the architect Vassiliev and the sculptor Lavretzky.
