MUSEUMS OF ST. PETERSBURG

Piskaryovka Cemetery


For two and a half years during World War II the Germans besieged Leningrad and between half a million and one million people died, mostly of cold and starvation. Almost half a million were buried in mass graves in this cemetery. With acres of slightly raised mounds marked by year, it's a sobering place. At the entrance is an exhibit of photographs that need no captions. Here you'll understand the Russian obsession with that war.
 

A visit to Piskarovskoye Cemetery leaves a strong emotional impact and illustrates the tremendous losses suffered by the city and the country in the war.
 

The cemetery is a long way out; about a 20-minute trip by car from the city center.
