Dostoevsky St Petersburg

Fedor Dostoevsky is definitely one of the most famous Russian writers abroad. His eye-opening novel mirrored the Russian society of the 19th century. MaxiBaltTours is happy to show you Saint Petersburg from the view point of the celebrated Russian writer, the city of Dostoevsky, the city of the real people on the sidewalks, who live away from the Grand Palaces and magnificent buildings.

Dostoyevsky St Petersburg

While on the tour you will learn about the years spent in Siberia in exile and about one of the first books written by Dostoevsky inspired by the dramatic period of his life - "Notes from the House of the Dead". You will visit the District of Haymarket Square that became the setting for Crime and Punishment, one of the most famous stories by Dostoevsky set against the backdrop of Saint Petersburg's sights, with most of the houses still looking like Dostoevsky's description. You will learn about the heroes of Dostoevsky, will find out why the writer preferred to stay at flats with the view of crossroads and other interesting details about his life that at many points intersect with those of his characters.
