Archeologists Verify that Dmitry Pozharsky is Buried in Suzdal
Dmitry Pozharsky

The prince Dmitry Mikhaylovich Pozharsky, who had played a key role in releasing Moscow from Polish invaders and restoring the Russian state, was really buried in a vault near the Monastery of the Saviour and St. Euthimius in Suzdal, Leonid Belyaev from Archeology Institute, RAS, confirms.
      For the first time the Pozharsky princess family burial vault, which had existed till 1765, was for the first time examined by Count Uvarov in 1851-52. He did not find any obvious evidence, such as inscriptions on the grave, yet by some indirect signs he concluded that Prince Dmitry Pozharsky was really buried in one of the 23 white-stone coffin chambers. Afterwards, in 1865-85 a marble chapel was raised over the vault, but was destroyed in the 1930s. Archeologists had to study the Pozharskys necropolis in connection with the plans on restoration of this chapel, which is expected to be open on 4 November 2009.
