YUZHNOE CEMETERY (Volkhonskoe Freeway, suburb area). The largest functioning St. Petersburg cemetery. Its area covers 278 hectares. The cemetery was opened in 1971. The Yuzhnoe Cemetery is outside city limits and can be expanded. The cemetery has a regulated architectural plan where burial sites can be reached via the main roads, which separate the lots. Among those buried at the Yuzhnoe Cemetery are Heroes of the Soviet Union M.P. Vasilyev, N.I. Brozgol, V.P. Gumalenko, and F.A. Kharitonov. At present, most St. Petersburg residents from various districts are buried at the Yuzhnoe Cemetery. The cemetery's remoteness causes problems for visitors on days of common remembrance, such as Saturday of Remembrance of the Departed Parents, and Radonitsa (commemoration of the dead, the Day of Rejoicing). There is a bus service to the Yuzhnoe Cemetery from the Moskovskaya metro station.
