St. Petersburg


Dostoevsky Literary Memorial Museum

Dostoevsky Literary Memorial Museum

This museum was the final home of the famous Russian writer, Fyodor Dostoevsky, who lived here from 1878 until his death in 1881. It was in this very apartment that he completed his final novel, "The Brothers Karamazov", in 1880. The museum is split into two parts, the first part is the memorial apartment with memorabilia relating to his life and the second part is a literary exhibit which is dedicated to the life of the author and his literary heritage.

Dostoevsky Literary Memorial Museum

This is the apartment where Dostoevsky and his family moved to, so you will see his daughter's nursery, including her rocking horse, Dostoevsky's study and desk, and his wife's study. As for the literary exhibit, there is a timeline detailing all the major events of his life including information on his arrest and his exile. Here, there is also an extremely interesting map which highlights the locations of the characters and events from Dostoevsky's novels in St. Petersburg.

For anyone that has read any of Dostoevsky's work and has enjoyed it, will want to experience where he lived and worked for his final few years. St. Petersburg and Dostoevsky were so closely related and his remnants are alive in most parts of the city, but it is here in the memorial apartment that you can inhabit the life and the work of the legendary writer.
