Fyodor Dostoevsky, the famous Russian novelist, journalist and short-story writer spent much of his life in Russia’s Northern Capital, even though he was born in Moscow. In his novels, Saint Petersburg is depicted not only as a city of beautiful palaces and mansions, but a city of dark lanes and streets, tenement houses, narrow canals, yard-wells and unsavory characters. If you are interested in 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. Our guide will show you the places connected to the writer and heroes of his novels.
