At first we will visit the Dostoevsky museum where Fyodor Dostoevsky lived with his family and where he wrote his latest novel "The Brothers Karamazov". After that you will see a special orthodox Vladimirskaya Church - where in 1881 there was the burial service dedicated to Dostoevsky. In front of the church you will find a monument to this famous writer and a subway station named after him.
After a short metro ride we will explore the old Sennaya square ("Hay Market square") - the area "inhabited" by the characters from Dostoevsky's novel - "Crime and Punishment".
