100-Year-Old Cemetery Nestled in Olympic Park

By  | 

SOCHI, RUSSIA - It's probably the last thing you would expect to find in the middle of Sochi's Olympic Park.

Russian police stand guard at the entrance. It's signified on the Sochi Olympic park map with a green circle but no description.

It's a 100-year-old cemetery. The only way to see it is to peek over the top of a fence.

It sits in the shadow of the "Fisht Olympic Stadium".

Russia spent more than $51 billion to build the venue. A community was re-located to build the park, but they demanded to leave behind the cemetery.
