Vvedenskoye cemetery, located almost in the center of Moscow, is often compared to the famous Pere Lachaise, located in Paris. Gothic sculptures, ancient crypts and silence .. Here is what meets the visitor of Basurmanian crypts.
In 1771 the plague came to Moscow. The worst epidemic claimed many lives, and there were not enough burial places in existing cemeteries. All this led to a wave of discontent and the authorities issued a decree "On measures to stop epidemics and the construction of cemeteries". That is how the Basurmanian crypts appeared.
Many urban legends are associated with the Basurmanian crypts. There is a myth that you can hear the sounds of a flute, at the moment when the sun sets and oblique shadows lie on the tombstones.
And in the very middle, you can hear the sounds of shackles, and in ghostly silhouettes you can recognize a woman in a long dress with a chic headdress and men with army swords and in uniforms.
Another legend says that under the cemetery there is a whole city with a huge number of catacombs and dungeons. But to get to this ghostly city is possible only through one of the tombs, but which is that, no one knows. View on a map!
