It’s been a while since I posted here. However, you should head over to the 365 Stories in a Year blog and read about one of the most interesting cemeteries I’ve ever seen. It’s the Novodevichy Cemetery in Moscow, Russia, where thousands of the elite of the Soviet Union were buried.
These were supposedly proletarian men and women yet they created some of the most massive monuments I’ve very seen in a cemetery and I’ve seen some big ones.
If you ever visit it, you will find politicians, artists, writers, fools, brilliant men, some of the most horrible leaders of history, and some of the most revered. It is a fascinating mix.
And you won’t find Joseph Stalin. He’s buried behind Lenin’s tomb on Red Square with all but one of the Soviet Union’s leaders. To see who isn’t there, read the story.
