Saint- Petersburg State Forest Technical Academy

It is the first college of forestry in Russia, founded as early as 1803. At present the Academy is one of the largest in the Russia.
The pride of the Academy is a large park on the slopes of a hill which used to be the shore of an ancient sea. The work of cultivating and enlarging the park has been going on for over a hundred years. The eminent scientist D. N. Kaigorodov, who lived there, contributed much to the improvement of this tree-nursery. He was buried on the territory of the park.
There is also a common grave in the park where the participants in the Great October Socialist Revolution are buried.
