“There is a chapel of the revered blessed Xenia of Petersburg. For more than 200 years, people have come to her to ask if there are difficulties in the family, with a loved one, at work. They say that she helps. And in general it’s good there,” my friend scolded me.

There really is a kind of special atmosphere, not at all oppressive, despite the burial site. In the small chapel of Xenia in St. Petersburg, the women, leaning against the wall, whisper something. They write notes with their requests and prayers and deposit them in a kind of mailbox. I was alone, without a guide. I walked through the alleys and read the inscriptions on the tombstones. Some make you stop. “Native of my mother. The maiden Lyudmila Konstantinovna Golonogova, she died on May 14, 1887, at the age of 19.” Now they no longer write like that on the obelisks. Or here: “Russian romance grandfather Nikolai Alekseevich Titov. Born. April 29, 1800. December 10, 1875.”

A modest tombstone with a stone cross, apparently, father and son rested here: Platon Alekseevich Puzyrevsky (1830-1871) and Professor Nestor Platonovich Puzyrevsky (1861-1934).
