  • On the day of the anniversary of the death of Dostoevsky I finally visited his Museum-apartment. Took the audio guide and unnoticed for more than an hour sank in 19-century events. I, like everyone else, was reading Dostoevsky at school but never inquired about the difficult fate of the writer, his personality! And the life he not less interesting and dramatic than the characters of the novel. Compact Museum consists of two parts: the writer's apartment, where he lived in the early creative activity in recent years, and where he died; as well as a dedicated literary path (here's the hall itself is not impressed, it was interesting only because of the audio guide!). Recommend not regret 150 rubles on the audio guide! Fine, if you have your headphones, more convenient listening + then couples can take one audio-guide. In General, I came out of the Museum under the impression now works entirely differently perceived by Dostoyevsky.

  • Every tourist should spend part of the time he spends in Saint Petersburg to visit at least a couple of house-museums that the city has set up and dedicated to his children who excelled in the arts, from music to literature. Dostoevsky House-Museum, located in a pleasant area of the city, is one of them. Memorabilia, memories, stories and some interior glimpses that go with the mind to "crime and punishment"; audio guide in Italian and free ticket with the Saint Petersburg card.

  • Anyone who Dostoyevsky perceives it through the prism of his characters, but in the House-Museum of the most magically, we see an entirely different person. I highly recommend taking the audio guide and absorb, absorb, absorb ... and then yielding mood buy on Nevsky that Demons. And remember the magic atmosphere of the House of genius.

  • 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.
