  • Dostoevsky is one of my favorite writers, which is why interested Museum. Usually due to the small number of exhibits such places do not visit. But Dostoevsky's apartment has the atmosphere of that era, and it seems that the writer as if still yesterday, sitting in his Office and wrote the novel "the Brothers Karamazov". Probably need to pay tribute to the caretakers of the Museum as they carefully preserve and maintain the museum itself in proper condition. In each room there is practically film Po motivam proizvedeniy pisatelya bottom sold souvenirs.

  • Quite touching, but I love Dostoevskij. You can visit the house where he died and see some of his stuff ( other stuff are descendants') . It is very small but I loved it!
  • I learned a lot about the life of Dostoevsky and his family. The entrance is only 200 Rubels.
  • If you have read his books, you will love the place.

  • Went to the Museum with an audioguide. Strongly advise him to take. Both rooms were very interesting, as the apartment and exhibition-biography. In General, good museum conveys the atmosphere of that time. If you're in the area, be sure to visit.
