What to Expect
If you are interested in Fyodor Dostoevsky, his novel Crime and Punishment, or any other works of this famous Russian writer, it’s worth exploring some of the sites that inspired Dostoevsky or that have been dedicated to him in memorial in St. Petersburg.

A famous Russian novelist, journalist, and short story writer, Dostoevsky spent much of his life in Russia’s northern capital, even though he was born in Moscow. In his novels, St. Petersburg is depicted not only as a city of beautiful palaces and mansions, but also as a city of dark lanes and streets, tenement houses, narrow canals, yard wells, and unsavory characters.

Your guide will show you the places connected to the writer and heroes of his novels. You will pass along Stolyarny Lane and Raskolnikov’s house, cross the Kokushkin Bridge, and go to Sennaya Square (Hay Square). You also pay a visit to the Dostoevsky Memorial Apartment, where the writer lived for 4 years with his wife and children. Finally, you will visit Dostoevsky’s grave in Tikhvin Cemetery, located on the territory of Alexander Nevsky Lavra in St. Petersburg.
