Description

This walking tour of St Petersburg, is both for Dostoyevsky fans and all those travelers who want to see non-touristy places. Fyodor Dostoyevsky is one of the greatest Russian writers of the 19th century. Though he was born in Moscow in 1821, Saint Petersburg was the main city of Dostoyevsky’s life. He spent most of his life in Saint Petersburg and the events of many of his novels take place in its streets and squares. Dostoyevsky’s world-famous novel 'Crime and Punishment' takes place in the notorious slums of Haymarket Square. Dostoyevsky lived close to this square for several years. Recently local scholars have identified many architectural landmarks on which 'Crime and Punishment' have been based. During this tour you will see many places connected with the life of Fyodor Dostoyevsky and the main characters of his novel 'Crime and Punishment'. Start your tour with Haymarket Square; reach the building where Dostoyevsky used to live, and the Raskolnikov House. Then follow Raskolnikov's route to the area where the murder took place and find the courtyard where he buried the stolen purse. Take a bus to Vladimirsky Prospekt and visit the Dostoyevsky Memorial Museum. It was the last home of Dostoyevsky, who lived here from 1878 until his death. And finally visit Tikhvin Cemetery where the famous Russian writer found his last resting place in 1881. There are many other addresses in the city connected with the name of Dostoevsky: the Mikailovsky Castle, the former Military Engineering College, where Fyodor Dostoevsky had studied for five years, Peter and Paul Fortress, where he was confined to a single cell for 8 months, Semenovsky Square and others. You can also tailor-make your tour to include some of the other sights.
