Fodor's Expert Review F.M. Dostoyevsky Literary-Memorial Museum

Vladimirskaya (Lower Nevsky Prospekt) Museum/Gallery

Here, in the last place in which he lived, Fyodor Dostoyevsky (1821–81) wrote The Brothers Karamazov. Dostoyevsky preferred to live in the part of the city inhabited by the ordinary people who populated his novels. He always insisted that the windows of his workroom overlook a church, as they do in this simple little house that has been remodeled to look as it did at the time Dostoyevsky and his family lived here. Perhaps the most interesting section of the museum deals with the writer's stay in prison in the Peter and Paul Fortress, and his commuted execution.
