Though today it is surrounded by city streets instead of countryside, the cemetery remains a garden of peace and contains over 9,000 graves. Most of the burials took place between 1860 and 1910, which includes some of the most violent decades of Knoxville’s history, as well as the heyday of the local marble industry, when the fashion for elaborate monuments and statuary was at its zenith. Join us for a guided tour of notable interments and hear stories of statesmen, soldiers, scholars, and spirits.

This tour is offered with the permission of the Old Gray Cemetery Association , a non-profit organization responsible for the cemetery and its maintenance. Ticket sales for this tour help to support this worthy cause.


  • Civil War soldiers, citizens, and statesmen from both North and South: our fugitive Congressman, a displaced priest and scholar, and the most successful and disliked newspaper editor of his time.
  • Victims of family feuds and affairs of honor: a prominent family stalked by death and disaster and a forbidding father with a daughter doomed to a tragic end.
  • Artists, friends, and ghosts: two ladies who shared a home and a love of beauty might still meet for a stroll, along with a pair of star-crossed lovers separated in life but lingering to reunite after death.

The struggle for women’s right to vote spans over 70 years and culminates in the passage of the 19th Amendment on August 18, 1920.

Live reviews

The first two openers for Old Gray were pretty decent in my opinion. Although Old Gray was the opener, the highlight of the show was the third opener, Milo. I was surprised to see a rapper opening for an emo band but he completely blew me out of the water. His aggressive tone and amazing instrumentals captured me and made me want to hear more of what he had to say.

Old Gray was still a good time. The mosh pit that opened up was pretty fun but the pretentious assholes around were bitching to much about it.

Old Gray Cemetery

Knoxville, tennessee.

old gray tour

Welcome to Old Gray

Old Gray Cemetery located in downtown Knoxville occupies 13 acres of beauty and history. The cemetery was founded in 1850 and dedicated in 1852 when the first 40 lots were sold at public auction. Today Old Gray clearly depicts Knoxville’s history and provides an important example of cemetery planning and design during the rural cemetery or garden movement.

You can stroll or drive through the winding avenues of Old Gray and see the excellent examples of Victorian art and architecture. The cemetery is a mixture of unmarked graves to massive monuments and mausoleums which honor the lives of those buried there.

The massive oaks and hackberry trees are part of a wide variety of trees and vegetation at Old Gray that are living witnesses to the history of Knoxville since before the Civil War at which time this area was an open pasture. Thanks to the vision of those who lived then, we can now enjoy the park setting that these trees have created.

You are invited to take a walk back through history and enjoy the past and the present.

Moscow Lubyanka Inside Main Building

Lubyanka: Inside the Story of Moscow’s Infamous Building and District

Published: June 15, 2021

There is always history surrounding us. In a city like Moscow, this can seem overwhelmingly apparent. Moscow has many imposing buildings from many eras – some are immediately recognizable and others only invite wonder as to what stories lay behind their beauty or grime.

Lubyanka is the name commonly used to refer to the building that has historically housed the security services of the USSR and modern Russia, from the Cheka to the KGB to the FSB. The name has also, for a much longer history, been applied to the adjacent square and surounding neighborhood.

The Lubyanka Building

by Alyssa Rider

The building now known as Lubyanka was originally several buildings.

The two largest were originally designed by Alexander Ivanov and were separated by a street. The largest of these two was built in 1898 and the smaller in 1902 by the All-Russia Insurance Company. Insurance and banking were rapidly growing and profitable industries at that time. Insurance companies would often invest their substantial cash holdings in real estate. Thus, most of the buildings were built as residential and the space was rented for profit.

Perhaps ironically, the original, much more ornate façade of the main building included two female figures representing Justice and Solace.

Moscow Lubyanka Inside

The buildings were seized following the 1917 revolution and became the headquarters for the secret police – the Cheka at the time, though it has served in the same role for the various iterations of the Soviet, and now Russian, state security services – from the OGPU and NKVD, the KGB, and now the FSB.

Lubyanka prison was established in 1920 inside a two story structure adjacent to the main buildings. It had originally been a hotel built, again, by the All-Russia Insurance Company. It was soon expanded to six floors. Jokes referred to it as the “tallest building in Moscow,” as one could purportedly see Siberia (and the Gulag system) from its basement, as that was the fate that awaited most that saw the inside of the prison’s walls.

In 1940, Aleksey Shchusev was commissioned to enlarge the complex to accommodate the increasing amount of staff required to handle the Great Purge. The staff had grown from 2,500 in 1928 to nearly 34,000 in 1940.

An extra floor was added, and the main building expanded horizontally, consuming and incorporating nearby buildings. This expansion was interrupted by the Nazi invasion, leaving the facade lopsided until it was completed under the orders of Yuri Andropov in the 1980s.

The building now contains FSB headquarters, a group of holding cells, the headquarters of the Border Guard Service, and two museums: one devoted to the KGB/FSB and one dedicated to the old prison (neither is actually open to the public).

The Museums Inside the Lubyanka Building

The museums offer regularly updated exhibits, both historical and modern. The Museum of the KGB, now known as the Historical Demonstration Hall of the FSB of Russia, is located inside the Lubyanka complex, and contains four rooms and over two thousand exhibits.

Exhibits cover the history of Russian and Soviet counterintelligence, and there are documents from the times of both Peter and Catherine the Great, as well as the Napoleonic War and WWI. There are separate stands with information on events relating to mass repressions, as well as a room dedicated to WWII. The museum also includes a significant amount of technical equipment that has been used for reconnaissance and counterintelligence purposes, as well as more recent documents relating to FSB operations.

Moscow Lubyanka Inside Museums

The prison museum has never been open to the public and is maintained only for FSB personnel and high-ranking government officials. The “Demonstration Hall” was opened to the public in 1989. Accessing it was still difficult, as it is located inside the FSB complex and tours were offered almost exclusively through private tour companies and only after screening potential visitors. In recent years, the tours became rarer and today this museum, too, is officially closed to outside visitors.

Lubyanka: Fountain, Statue, or Abstract Nothing?

The names were not the only thing that changed. In 1835, a fountain was installed on the square. This fountain was called Nikolsky Fountain (its name borrowed from the same gates mentioned above), and was designed by the Italian sculptor Giovanni Vitali and supplied potable water to the neighborhood.

Nikolsky Fountain is one of the oldest in Moscow, and it still stands, but no longer on Lubyanka. It was moved in the 1930s to a new location in the courtyard of Alexandrinsky Palace in Neskuchny Garden, part of the Gorky Park complex in central Moscow.

Moscow Lubyanka Inside Dzerzhinsky Removal

In 1958, a 15-ton iron statue of Dzerzhinsky, known as “Iron Felix” was installed in its former place on Lubyanka. This statue, in turn, was toppled in a public demonstration after the fall of the Soviet Union. It was transferred by the Russian Academy of Arts to the Muzeon, also known as Fallen Monument Park, to be joined by many other Soviet statues removed or toppled at that time.

In 2017, a general renovation of Lubyanka and the surrounding traffic patterns was announced by the city. It was debated if the fountain or even Iron Felix should be brought back. In the end, however, the space was enlarged and landscaped with flat, circular geometric shapes. The space, used and undecorated, remains largely unused.

In 2021, another effort to bring back the statue was proposed by the modern Communist Party in Moscow. The mayor initially agreed to allow the issue to be voted on in a referendum, but soon reversed his decision and killed the initiative.

The Solovetsky Stone

The Solovetsky Stone is a monument located across the street from Lubyanka Square in a separated area known as Musuem Park. It was created in commemoration of the political prisoners who were repressed under the GULAG system.

The Solovetsky Stone is a large granite block brought from the Solovetsky Islands, where the Solovetsky Special Purpose Camp operated in the 1920s and 1930s as part of the GULAG system. It was officially opened on October 30, 1990.

Founding such a memorial had become a matter of public discussion a few years earlier, in the late 1980s. The Memorial Society, now a globally-respected NGO, began a petition with the goal of creating a monument of political repression in 1987, and in 1988, a Public Council for the creation of such a monument was formed. A contest was also held in 1988, wherein people could submit their monument ideas and suggest locations, but a winner for this contest was never chosen.

St. Petersburg Solovetsky Stone

The specific stone idea came from a memorial created in the village of Solovetsky in 1989 by former Solovetsky prisoners, many of whom stayed there after their release, and members of the Memorial Society. Members of the Society from Arkhangelsk, St. Petersburg, and Moscow liked the idea so much that they acquired boulders to place in their own cities.

The opening of the Moscow memorial on served as a triumph not only in its own right, but also marked the first official recognition of the Day of Victims of Political Repression since that day began to be recognized by dissidents in 1974. Every year on this day, people now gather near the Solovetsky Stone to mourn. Since 2007, a practice called the ‘Return of Names’ has taken place on the 29th from 10 AM to 10 PM – people from across the city gather in a long line to take turns reading the names of Muscovites who were executed. Similar actions take place in many other cities and even other countries, on this day or the next.

The Solovetsky Stone has also become an unofficial site for civil protest, serving not only as a memorial but as a symbol for modern-day political dissonance.

  • Dates & Prices

Long before the Golden Ring gained fame as one of Russia’s best multi-day tourist circuits, the small collection of cities northeast of Moscow played a vital role in shaping the country’s history. Its oldest settlements can be traced back to at least the 10th century. Our   Golden Ring  Russia tour will unfold the fascinating, deep-rooted history of the region and take you back to a simpler time of picturesque farms and villages, wooden houses and onion-domed cathedrals, all set against the enchanting backdrop of the Russian countryside.

Golden Ring Russia Tour Highlights

  • The village of Suzdal appears like a scene from a Russian storybook and has inspired artists and writers for centuries. Wander wide-eyed through quiet laneways and cobblestone plazas, passing horse-drawn buggies and medieval churches.
  • Yaroslavl was the first Christian city on the Volga River. Many of Russia’s greatest craftsmen, stonemasons, painters and sculptors came together to create this city of magnificent churches and monuments, dating back to the 12th century.
  • Rostov is the oldest town in the Golden Ring and the most architecturally impressive, rich in elegantly restored monuments dating from the 12th to the 17th century.
  • Sergiev Posad is one of the most important spiritual centres of the Orthodox Church, sometimes referred to as the ‘Russian Vatican’ for its magnificent white churches with their signature blue and gold cupolas.

Today, much of Russia’s Golden Ring region remains remarkably untouched by urbanisation. Surrounded by rolling hills and flowering meadows, these lands provide a glimpse of rural Russian life that has changed little for generations. Many of the Golden Ring’s villages were instrumental in the rise of the Orthodox church, as evidenced by the abundance of magnificent cathedral spires and domes.

Apart from their religious significance, these proud towns have staunchly preserved their time-honoured traditions, folk art and cuisine. UNESCO's World Heritage Committee has recognised the cultural value of some of the Golden Ring's most exceptional sites, including the historic centre of Yaroslavl and the white monuments of Vladimir and Suzdal.

This four-day Golden Ring Russia tour covers all the most rewarding gems of the Golden Ring. As you take in some of the most iconic images and artistic endeavours of Old Russia, your guide will enlighten you with stories and legends that will transport you to a time of knights and princes, heroes and villains, Tsars and fairy tales.

Itinerary View map

Day 1 vladimir and suzdal.

Your guide will pick you up at your hotel in Moscow. Board a car for a drive to Vladimir, which used to be one of the medieval capitals of Russia. During our guided sightseeing tour, we will visit the Cathedral of St Demetrius, Assumption Cathedral and the Golden Gates which featured on UNESCO’s World Heritage List.

Next, we headed to Suzdal, the most magical of the Golden Ring towns. We will visit the old Kremlin, the Spass-Evfimievsky Monastery and the Cathedral of Transformation, along with other unique cultural and religious objects.

Day 2 Plyos and Kostroma

We start our day with a short drive to Plyos, a small and picturesque town. This is a place you will want to come back to as it has typical Russian views and an indescribable atmosphere of a 19th-century city.

After a glance tour in the area, we travel on to Kostroma, a historic city which sits on the banks of the Volga River. We will visit the Ipatievsky Monastery which is considered the place where the reign of the House of Romanov began. From Kostroma, we travel on to Yaroslavl for the night.

Day 3 Yaroslavl and Rostov

Today we discover Yaroslavl, the unofficial capital of the Golden Ring whose historical centre is protected by UNESCO. It is a town of trades and crafts, with the majority of churches leaving you impressed with its original beauty. Of special interest is the Monastery of the Transfiguration of the Saviour, founded in the 12th century, and the majestic Church of Elijah the Prophet.

Next, we head to Rostov, where we visit the Kremlin, a pearl of Russian architecture of the 17th century, and Spaso-Yakovlevsky monastery.

Day 4 Peresalvl-Zalessky and Sergiev Posad

From Rostov, we travel on to Pereslavl-Zalessky, where we take a short sightseeing tour of Red Square and the ramparts. This town is famous for some unique museums like the Museum of Iron or Museum of Kettle.

Board a car for a drive to Sergiev Posad, known as "Russian Vatican" for its magnificent blue and golden cupolas scattered all around the town. Here we visit the Holy Trinity Lavra, one of Russia's most important religious centres founded in the mid-14th century, and enjoy a wonderful sightseeing tour of the city. Closer to the evening, you will arrive back to Moscow.
