Piskaryovskoe Memorial Cemetery is the memorial complex, which was opened on 9 May 1960 on the spot of the mass burials of the citizens, who died during the Siege of Leningrad (8Septemder 1941 – 27 January 1944) and of soldiers, who defended the city that time. The Piskaryovskoe Cemetery is a special place for all the citizens of Saint-Petersburg, because it keeps the history and memory of all the victims of the Great Patriotic War and of the Siege of Leningrad. Annually the wreath-laying ceremonies are held here. On the territory of the cemetery there are two pavilions, where in 1961 the museum exposition was placed. It reproduces the conditions of life during the 900-days Siege and tells about Hitler’s plans to destroy Leningrad, about the courage, heroism and firmness of the citizens and solders. Here you may look though the photos and videos of the Siege period. Throughout the day you can watch the documentary film “Memory of the Blockade” and “The Blockade album”.On the upper terrace of the Piskaryovskoe Cemetery there is the Eternal flame, which burns in memory of all the victims of the Blockade. Along the eastern line of the cemetery there is the Alley of Memory, where the memorial gravestones from the cities and regions from all over the country as well as from CIS and other foreign countries are situated.
