An open air museum of the grave stones.
In my childhood I did not like this place - kids do not understand and accept death. Time passed and now I realise, that it is just a Park of Good Memories. It is a museum under the open sky. Many famous poets, composers, architects, scientists, singers, artists are buried here. The beautiful sculptures dating from 18th century are very symbolic and mysterious. I will unveil you an absolutely unique place in Ukraine.
We will start exploring the oldest part of the cemetery to see the symbolic sculptures of Greek gods: Tanatas, Hypnos and their Mother Nikta, then walk to see the graves of the outstanding people, who are buried there, then visit the Military memorial.

Excellent tour. Irene is a true professional, and a very pleasant person. She was well prepared, well organized. We enjoyed all three tours she prepared for us. We were a group of 6 people and we all agreed that Irene as a tour guide was exceptional.
