Baikove Cemetery is a famous and historic cemetery in Holosiiv District of Kyiv. One of the oldest and most beautiful cemeteries in Kyiv. Established in 1833-34 on the Baikova Hill and named after general S. Baikov, a member of the Franco-Russian War of 1812 and the Russian-Turkish War of 1828-29. It is a National Historic Landmark of Ukraine. The cemetery is a Ukrainian pantheon; many prominent Ukrainians have been buried here, including Mykhailo Hrushevskyi (a Ukrainian academician, politician, historian, and statesman, one of the most important figures of the Ukrainian national revival of the early 20th century), Lesya Ukrainka (one of Ukraine's best-known poets and writers and the foremost woman writer in Ukrainian literature, also a political, civil, and female activist), Volodymyr Shcherbytsky (a Ukrainian and Soviet politician; a leader of the Communist Party of Ukraine [the then equivalent of the head of Soviet republic] from 1972 to 1989), Valeri Lobanovsky (a Soviet-Ukrainian football manager, the Master of Sports of USSR, the Distinguished Coach of USSR, the laureate of the UEFA Ruby Order; most famous for managing Dynamo Kyiv Football Team), Oleg Antonov (a Soviet aircraft designer, the founder of Antonov ASTC, a world-famous aircraft company in Ukraine), Mykola Amosov, MD (a Ukrainian doctor, heart surgeon, inventor and exercise enthusiast, known for his inventions of several surgical procedures for treating heart defects) and many others.There are about 20 historic crypts/mausoleums at the cemetery.
