Dostoyevsky wrote Crime and Punishment in this house. The suggested route is rather long but very interesting.
Long live Russia's literary greats!
Saint Petersburg is home to the museum apartments of some of the greatest names in Russian literature. The famous Russian writer Fyodor Dostoyevsky has also been honoured by the city with a museum in what was his house from 1878 until his death in 1881. The museum is closed on Mondays and the last Wednesday of each month and the nearest metro is Dostoevskaya. It can be found at 7 Kaznacheyskaya and is where Dostoyevsky wrote his masterpiece Crime and Punishment. To take a good look around the rooms where he worked, his living quarters and the occasional temporary exhibition of contemporary art, we recommend allowing 1-2 hours to visit this museum apartment. Remember that although the museum is easy to find, the entrance is at street level down a short flight of steps.
