Serafimovskoe cemetery was founded in 1905, located in the Primorsky district of St. Petersburg. On March 1, 1907, the church built in the cemetery was consecrated in the name of St. Seraphim of Sarov. The cemetery was named after the main saint in the church. In 1941-1944 it became the second place of mass graves, after Piskarevsky cemetery. Victims of the siege of Leningrad - more than 100 thousand people are buried in mass graves. January 27, 1965, on the 21st anniversary of the lifting of the blockade, a memorial complex was erected, built on the site of sixteen brotherly grave hills. The general project of the necropolis was developed by Professor I. I. Lukin; sculpture figures were performed by students of the Leningrad Art and Craft College named after. VI Mukhina under the guidance of Professor RK Taurit. At the entrance to the memorial there are propylae and flagpoles with half-masted red and Russian flags. On the propylaea are carved memorable texts. In the center rises a four-span porch on a high plinth, with five monumental sculptures depicting the defenders and toilers of Leningrad. In front of the portico is a granite cube with a lit Eternal Fire and a platform paved with black stone by labradorite. Address: st. Zaudabadnaya Str. 33 .
