  Dostoevskij tomb
by Sioma

The monastir at the end of Nevskij prospekt
it's one of the most important in Russia: there are only 4 Lavra (a Lavra is something more important than a simple monastir ) ; the other are in Moscow, Kiev, and Pochaev.
Interesting the cemetery, where you can find,among the others, the tombs of Dostoevskij, Chajkovskij, Stravinskij
