Hundreds of fans of the late rock star Viktor Tsoi visited his grave at Bogoslovskoye Cemetery in St. Petersburg on Sunday to commemorate the 20th anniversary of his death, Interfax reported.

People of all ages laid flowers on the grave, where a memorial, restored by architects who are his fans, was unveiled Sunday.
