    When Maria Pawlowna Romanowa, a Grand Duchess of Russia and Grand Duchess of Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach, died in 1859, several claims / problems had to be resolved at the same time. On the one hand, she was from the ruling house of Weimar, so she should also be buried in Weimar. She was the Grand Duchess of Russia and should be buried in Russian soil. Surrounded by Protestants, she was of the Russian Orthodox faith and was nevertheless to be buried next to her husband, Carl Friedrich von Sachsen-Weimar.
    Solution: Take Russissche Erde to Weimar, build the Russian-Orthodox chapel in the cemetery on it, dig an underground passage right behind the princely crypt and burial the couple there next to each other. - Problem solved. ;-)

    The Russian Orthodox Church of St. Mary Magdalene in Weimar was built between 1860 and 1862 as a burial chapel for the Russian Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna. It is located in the historical cemetery Weimar, directly behind the princely crypt, and is connected to it underground. Maria Pavlovna's coffin is located directly in the underground connection between the princely crypt and the burial chapel. Her husband's coffin, Carl Friedrich, is arranged directly next to it. A spiral staircase, now closed by a metal plate, leads from the chapel to this underground connection to the prince's crypt.
