Novodevichy Cemetery, @Nazim's
During my various visits to Moscow,I always wanted to visit Nazim Hikmet, unfortunately I did not have time. During my last visit we managed to visit Nazim at Novodevichy Cemetery.He was lying there with his latest wife Vera Tulyakova.
I was hoping to visit Nadejda Alleliyuva's grave also,but the graveyard was so big and since we payed a visit to Novodevichy Monastory before the cemetery we were already tired so everyone wanted to leave.
The biggest grave belongs to Boris Yeltsin, it is the biggest and just in the center that you can not possibly miss.
