Fyodor Dostoevsky is one of the most famous writers in Russian literature worldwide. Dostoyevsky lived and worked in the city on the Neva. The city’s atmosphere in the middle of the 19th century permeates Dostoevsky’s literary world – this topic has been the subject of hundreds of books by literary scholars and historians. Many of the places described by the author can still be found in the city. There are courtyards and buildings from Crime and Punishment, streets along which the Brothers Karamazov walked, the bridge described in Demons.
A commonplace observation is that Saint Petersburg in Dostoevsky's works is not so much a place of action as its subject - the city becomes a hero in the writer's novels. In our themed tour around Dostoevsky’s Saint Petersburg, you will form your own opinion about this topic, and see and feel for yourself this writer’s world, and that of his characters: the houses of Raskolnikov and Sonya Marmeladova, Sennaya Square, and other places.
Dostoevsky’s apartment museum opens the door to the writer’s everyday life and his creative world – a guided tour, given in English, French, Spanish and other languages can also be included in the tour around Dostoevsky’s Saint Petersburg.
We can end the outing by visiting the writer’s grave, which is located at Tikhvin Cemetery.
