Cemetery 1 (on S.P.Botkin street)

Central entrance to Cemetery No. 1 (on S.P.Botkin street)City cemetery 1 of the department for civil services of the Tashkent city municipality is located in the city center. Cemetery 1 (and simply "Botkin cemetery") is one of the ancient, historical cemeteries of Tashkent city. The cemetery is being considered as the European one with the first graves dated back to 1850. Unfortunately, the archive of the cemetery was burned down in 1918. The number of graves from 1918 to June'2000 exceeds 332 thousand people. The total number of maps is 29.

The cemetery is divided into 2 parts:

  • The first part of the cemetery is a general part with people of different nationalities (Russians, Armenians, Greeks, Jewish, etc.) buried here. Although some maps are represented by people of only one nationality.
    The map 8 is approximately Armenian.
    The first part of the cemetery has 26 maps.
  • The second part of the cemetery is so called "Communist part". It has 3 maps with some famous scientists, Communist party officials, intelligentsia representatives, military officials, participants of World War II buried here.

There is an Orthodox Church named after Saint Alexander Nevskiy on the territory of the cemetery. The senior priest of the Church is Настоятель храма отец Николай.

The cemetery is being visited highly irregularly. After the collapse of the USSR, many families left Tashkent. Many of them never come to visit the graves but there are some people who visit the graves of their relatives almost every year.

The state of graves and tombs is highly different from one to another. There are some really good-looking tombs maintained in a proper condition. But, there are also many graves that are not being visited by anybody.
