St Petersburg of Fedor Dostoevsky

Fyodor Dostoevsky is the most famous Russian writers. He was a genius who explored and understood human psychology in the troubled political, social and spiritual atmosphere of the 19th century. Now, more than a hundred years after his death, people all over the world are greatly interested in his novels, his biography and his personality.

Dostoevsky was born in Moscow where he spent the first 16 years of his life, but St Petersburg became the city of his life. His most important novels were written here, the majority of his characters lived in our city and above all the city itself became a real character of his novels. Dostoevsky never lived in or described in his works any of aristocratic areas of St Petersburg such as Nevsky Prospect or Palace Square; his city is the city of poor clerks, the city of poor and homeless people. These areas are never included into ordinary sightseeing tours but tourists show a special interest now though they have greatly changed since the time of Dostoevsky.
