  • Dostoevsky, like Church and market Tavern in the street in the Dormition Cathedral in Vladimir and then had a open-air market now. I had to imagine and went out from the den, on light the izakaya is a peek down the street, and met the man Dostoevsky.

  • It is a open room had an Dostoevsky Museum. For the corner of the apartment building, the entrance is a little confusing. Is published, but the entrance is on the first floor rooms are on the second floor, staff. Interior space was introduces an Dostoevsky and St. Petersburg history.

  • If you love literature you will love this place. The audio guide is available in English and describes Dostoevsky's life in details and really takes you back in his time. The museum is made in the house he lived in.

  • The first part of the museum in Dostoevsky's rooms had good written information. The second part with displays of photographs and letters has little written information so the audio guide is essential

Best things to do in St. Petersburg

Where to stay in St. Petersburg

For luxury hotels with a price tag to match, you can't beat the city's historical heart--Palace Square--and Nevsky Prospekt, the main avenue that connects the square to the Neva River. The area around St. Isaac's Cathedral, at the west end of Nevsky Prospekt, also offers a great selection of luxury and mid-range options. If you want to see the other side of the city, consider staying on Vasilyevsky Island, at the mouth of the river. Increased competition means that St. Petersburg now offers a wide range of inexpensive but funky hostels scattered throughout the city.
