The tour includes a walk in streets inhabited by Dostoevsky's characters, a visit to his flat and his graveyard


Have you read Crime and Punishment and Brothers Karamazovs by Fedor Dostoevsky? Do you want to take a walk in the places described in the novels and to see the house of Raskolnikov? Have you been dreaming of visiting Dostoevsky's flat and learning about his life story? You dream will come true if you take this tour! You will have a chance to walk in the streets where Dostoevsky's characters lived. The gem of the tour is a visit to his flat where he spent his last years and died in January 1881. After a visit to Vladimirsky church where the burial service for Dostoevsky was held, we are going to have a rest and enjoy Russian authentic food in a local restaurant. The finishing touch of the tour is a visit to Alexander Nevsky monastery with the graveyard where you will see the grave of Dostoevsky and honor his memory.
