  • Музеј-стан Достојевског је организован тако као да сте дошли у посету самом писцу. Музеј је организован у три целине: 1) пишчев стан са личним и породичним предметима ; 2) тамна соба са делима и радов...  more »
  • To be honest, from Dostoevsky's crime and punishment, only read and the player it seems. My husband and I accidentally wandered in this Museum and have not regretted that visited. Now there's the exposition Exposition about the history of the love and life of a writer with his wife. It was very interesting to get acquainted with the details and admire his wife's genius. Also look at how he lived in the last years F.m. Audioguide we did not take, read the description of each room independently. You may have missed something. The Museum spent about an hour. Satisfied and inspired many others to read Dostoyevsky. In General, if you're not in a hurry, then this would not go amiss.

  • 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.
