RUSSIAN FRATERNAL CEMETERY. CRIMEAN WAR (1853-1856)
[ ] 19.07.2010, 11:51
    Fraternal cemetery is an enormous town of dead fighting men who had not allowed their enemies, as one of epitaph says "to overstep the border-line of the place, where their graves are situated". 472 common graves are hidden inside the hill; in each grave there lie from 50 to 100 bodies and even more - those are the bodies of unknown and nameless heroes of lower ranks, and also 130 individual burial places of officers and generals.

    The territory of the cemetery was divided into sections according to a kind of troops, and common graves were divided according to regiments and independent units. They buried here those who were killed on Sevastopol bulwarks and those who were killed in actions near Sevastopol. There are also the graves of those who died after the war. Besides large common graves there are many separate burial places with monuments. Among them one could distinguish the monument of generak Khruliov (to the left of the gate), of general Totleben? and of genegal Gorchakov who was Commander-in-Chief of Crimean Army.

    Over the necropolis rises Fraternal cemetery temple which is a pyramidal formed church of St.Nicolas. It was built in 1870 as a memorial dedicated to all heroes of Sevastopol defence who lie here in this land.

    The author of this project is A.A.Avdeyev, honoured with the title of academician for the project of the church.
