During the defence such heroes of Sevastopol epopee as admirals Kornilov, Istomin, Nakhimov were buried in the burial-vaults. St. Nikolay church, the lower one, was sanctified in 1881; St. Vladimir church, the upper one, - in 1888. 9 superior naval officers were buried along the walls of the lower church from 1869 to 1920.
