Dostoevsky Walk: The Master of St. Petersburg

Some critics view Leo Tolstoy as top Russian writer ever. We believe that human nature was best explored and understood by someone else – Fyodor Dostoevsky. Joining our Dostoevsky walking tour in St. Petersburg you will learn about the writer’s dramatic life, his work and his love. Hear stories about how “the beacon of Russian intelligentsia” and “the Master of St. Petersburg” was once sentenced to death, survived imprisonment, nearly ended up in publisher’s pocket, but got away with it, and how it influenced the writing of his books. Wonder the little streets and back alleyways, go across foot bridges in the area generally known as Dostoevsky district. Visit places where The White Nights, Brothers Karamazov and The Idiot were written. Make the 730 steps from Raskolnikov’s house to the pawn-broker’s apartment, soak in the atmosphere of Hay market square and visit other iconic spots from Crime and Punishment.
