Troitskoe Cemetery

Troitskoe Cemetery (May 2013)

Just behind the statue of Nadezhda Durova is the abandoned Troitskoe (Trinity) Cemetery. The cemetery served as the final resting place for many of Yelabuga's merchant families including the Shishkins and the Stakheevs, but more famously the grave of Nadezhda Durova is also found here. Durova's original grave was destroyed when the cemetery was closed in the 1930s, but a replacement has since been made which states "Here lies Russia's Joan of Arc". The cemetery's Holy Trinity Church was also destroyed when the cemetery was closed and only its foundations can be seen today.
