Alexander Nevsky Lavra

Alexander Nevsky Lavra

The 1812 Overture was one the first classical CDs I ever owned. Maybe that’s not saying much because I own less than 10 classical CDs (and another one of those is The Nutcracker). But in any event, when my bus in Saint Petersburg, Russia wasn’t going in the direction that Google maps said it was supposed to be going I pulled up a map on my phone to see if anything interesting was in the neighborhood. Tchaikovsky’s grave was so I hopped off the bus to check it out.

Today’s photo isn’t of his grave but the monastery and church on the same grounds.
