Dostoyevsky Walk

'... I am convinced there are lots of people in Petersburg who talk to themselves as they walk. This is a town of crazy people. ... There are few places where there are so many gloomy, strong and queer influences on the soul of man as in Petersburg.'

Fyodor M. Dostoyevsky
Crime and Punishment

Availability: Tentatively scheduled for Nov 29, 2014. Details here: https://www.facebook.com/peterswalk. Otherwise by private booking only (see bottom of page).
Duration: 3 hours.

Visit places associated with the great writer's books and life. Sites from Crime and Punishment, including the murder route, and other novels.

In research of the theme, we meander through the maze of backyards of this huge stage set that is called St. Petersburg - a city that itself is one of the main characters of Dostoyevsky's novels.

Some major stops along the way:
1. Dostoyevsky's last apartment, where he died in 1881;
2. The site of the writer's mock execution at Semenovsky Square;
3. The Hay Market, or Sennaya Ploschad - the core of the St. Petersburg slums at Dostoyevsky's times;
4. The sites associated with Crime and Punishment: Raskolnikov's house, the Pawn Broker's house, the murder route.

The tour is guided by Peter, Nick or Olga.
