Novodevichy Convent and Cemetery
The roll-call of those who have been laid to rest in this fascinating cemetery says something about its prestigethe writers Nikolai Gogol, Anton Chekhov, Mikhail Bulgakov, the poet Maiakovskii, singer Chaliapin and composer Skriabin, plus Stalin's wife and last but not least, the bizarre black-and-white headstone devoted to former Soviet leader Nikita Krushchev. The cemetery complex can accommodate a good couple of hours of wandering and picking out the most interesting graves, such as the WW II commander with a model tank atop his grave.
