Top Local Tips for St. Petersburg

Tikhvin Cemetery In the afternoon we took the metro down to Ploshchad Alexander Nevskovo, where we wanted to visit the ALEXANDER NEVSKY MONASTERY and, particularly the Tikhvin Cemetery. It took us two attempts to get there – although we had counted the stations we overlooked one stop (which was written very small on the map!). We had to go back down the escalator – which takes 2 minutes 50 seconds from top to bottom – and continue on to the next stop. When you come out of the metro the Monastery is only a couple of minutes’ walk away (there is a good map in the Rough Guide). THE TIKHVIN CEMETERY lies just inside the main entrance to the monastery – there is a small ticket office at the entrance to the cemetery – and here you will find the tombs of an extraodinary collection of people, notably Dostoevsky, Glinka, Tchaikovsky, Mussorgsky & Rimsky Korsakov. The cemetery was deserted except for a security guard and a few cats playing in the snow. Like so many places we visited, it looked eerily beautiful beneath a blanket of snow and was a truly fascinating & very picturesque place to wander through. We left the cemetery and crossed a small river into the main monastic complex and to Trinity Cathedral – this is a working church, free to enter, with a very similar feel to Kazan Cathedral. A useful tip – there is a toilet on the right just after you cross the river into the main complex!

Russian souvenirs well priced at Duty Free Buy vodka, chocolate, dolls, wooden bowls, and other Russian-made handicrafts at the Duty Free on your way out of the country.
