NECROPOLIS OF THE 18TH CENTURY (before 1939, the Lazarevskoe Cemetery), memorial necropolis, part of the City Sculpture Museum (from 1932) on the territory of the Alexander Nevsky Lavra. Its square takes up 0.7 hectares. Many of Peter the Great's associates were buried there in the late 1710s, including Field Marshal B.P. Sheremetev, General A. Weide, and Court Physician R. Areskin. Originally, burials took place at the wooden Holy Annunciation Church (1713, rebuilt in the 1750s, torn down in 1789) and the Lazarevskaya Burial Vault (hence the former cemetery name). Among those buried at the necropolis are academics M.V. Lomonosov, L. Euler, V.E. Adodurov and S.P. Krasheninnikov; Admiral V.Y. Chichagov; playwrights D.I. Fonvizin and Y.B. Knyazhnin; architects I.E. Starov, A.N. Voronikhin, G. Quarenghi, J.F. Thoma de Thomon, A.D. Zakharov and K.I. Rossi; military engineer A.A. Bethencourt; statesmen A.S. Stroganov, N.S. Mordvinov, M.N. Muravyev and S.Y. Witte; and members of many noble families, including Beloselsky-Belozersky, Trubetskoy and Volkonsky families of princes, the Naryshkin noble family, the former merchant family of the Demidov, and the Yakovlev, et al. Alexander Pushkin's widow, N.N. Lanskaya (1812-63), was buried in the north section of the necropolis. The necropolis came under the responsibility of the St. Petersburg Society in 1922, and was named a memorial necropolis in 1932. Its first guardian was historian N.V. Uspensky. Over a thousand gravestones have been preserved, including ones made by I.P. Martos, M.I. Kozlovsky, V.I. Demut-Malinovsky, Voronikhin, F.P. Tolstoy, and other masters.
