The First National Pantheon Opened In Russia

The first federal military memorial is opening in Russia.


The first federal military memorial is opening in Mytishchinsky District of the Moscow Region. It is situated on 55 hectares area. This will be the very first in Russia national pantheon, where war heroes and state figures, who served to Russia in peaceful life, will find their rest. The most significant elements of the memorial are entrance steles, Glory Obelisks, Heroes Avenue, Remembrance Arch, Columbarium Pantheon, the complex of Eternal Flame and Grief Monument.


The idea to establish a memorial cemetery came up in 1990-s, but the construction works started in March of 2008. It was planned to open the pantheon in 2010 by 65th Victory Day. But due to requests of Anatoly Serdyukov, the former Minister of Defence, opening date was delayed 5 times. The last time it was planned to be opened on May 9, 2012.
