Lesja Ukrainka's grave - general view

General view of the grave of Lesja Ukrainka and her relatives in the Old Bajkove cemetery in Kyiv

Photo N.I.Zharkikh, April 27, 2008. At Baykove cemetery, as in Kyiv and in general, no custom to build a family tomb, while the more practiced burial of relatives near existing graves. Common fence covered gravestones of Michael Kosach, Lesja Ukrainka's brother (pictured – in the corner near the fence), Peter and Olga Kosach, Lesja Ukrainka's parents (photo – two well-lit boards behind the monument). Three similar plates, should guess, made in 1939 when the monument was installed.
