Description

First and foremost, we should note that Aleksandr Nevsky Lavra is a Russian Orthodox monastery located at the eastern end of Nevsky Prospect. It is Saint Petersburg’s oldest and largest monastery.

Aleksandr Nevsky Lavra includes several necropolises. And fortunately for you, this tour will give you the chance to visit them and see the burial places of many preeminent figures of the 18th and 19th centuries. You’ve probably heard the name of world-famous Russian writer Fyodor Dostoevsky. How about Mikhail Lomonosov? He was Russia’s first naturalist and academic to gain international notoriety. What about legendary military leader, Suvorov! The bottom line is, a tour through Aleksandr Nevsky Lavra is certain to offer you a memorable rendezvous with many great figures from the past.

And the present is no less interesting. As it turns out, the monastery’s current superior, Bishop Nazarius, is very active on the Internet, regularly reading and commenting on Facebook posts. An in-person meeting with him is not part of the tour, but who knows? Perhaps you will get lucky and cross his path!
