Family vault of the outstanding Russian commander, Hero of the Patriotic War of 1812, Prince P.Ch. Wittgenstein was built in 1840 near the Lutheran Church. The walls of the vault are niches for the burial of the dead, which are decorated with columns and vaulted ceiling. It is known that Peter Christianovich, his wife Antonina Stanislavovna, daughter Emilia Petrovna Trubetskaya and other family members were buried in the vault. There was also a silver vessel with the heart of P.Ch. Wittgenstein’s son Lev Petrovich, who died in Germany.

Coffins with the bodies of the deceased were stored in niches, walled with marble slabs. They had a last name, a name, a patronymic, date of birth and death. Currently, only one plate on the grave of A.S. Wittgenstein (Snarska) has survived. In 1934, the сhurch was closed and the family vault was desecrated a few years later. The final resting place of the family members of Wittgenstein is currently unknown.
