Novodevichy cemetery ノボデビチ墓地

September 13, 2010

In Russia, or at least Moscow, even in death people have style.  It’s interesting how cemeteries can be tourist destinations.  I guess it’s that link to the past and the chance for new generations to somehow ‘touch’ the famous folk of the past.  Among the notables buried are novelist Anton Chekhov, composer Dmitri Shostakovich, statesman Vyachislav Molitov (the one the ‘cocktail’ is named after), and most recently, first president of the Russian Federation, Boris Yeltsin.  Sadly, though patriotically themed, his monument is one of the least attractive.  The grounds of Novodevichy cemetery are not overly spectacular, it’s the art of the tombstones that’s quite amazing.  I’ll let the photos do the talking.

ロシアに死んだ人もスタイルがあります。墓地は主要な観光目的地になっていることが面白いですね。ノボデビチ墓地の所はまま面白いですけど墓石がすてきだと思います。そこにたくさん有名なロシア人が葬られました。小説家とか作曲家とか政治家が葬られました。2007に最初のロシア連邦の大統領のボリス イェルチンが葬られました。イェルチンさんの墓石はロシアの旗みたいです。ちょっと。。。見る時何と思いますか。
