Description

The program of the tour is organized so that to satisfy the most exquisite taste of literature-lovers.

Why Dostoevsky? – you might ask. And why Russia? Why St.-Petersburg? – we’ll ask you in turn. Language is not just a means of communication, but a vivid expression of the native spirit. In the city constructed by foreign architects you can find something authentic – Russian Literature. The author of “Crime and Punishment” and “The Karamazov Brothers”. A psychologist famous for his deep insight into the human soul. A passionate gambler. A prophet. A devoted father. A prisoner. A jealous husband. An international cultural code. A Russian man. Fyodor Dostoevsky.

Unlike many tours of the kind our is really exclusive – it covers the whole life and literary heritage of the great writer. Walking from one place to another, led by a specialist in Dostoevsky’s creativity (Master degree in Russian Literature), at the end of the tour you will for sure be charmed by the city and culture shown from a very special point of view. Don’t be surprised if you feel a desire to read the whole set of books by Dostoevsky or even start your own research!

You will visit the places where the writer lived, follow the  steps of his characters, relax in a 19-th century-décor restaurant of the best Russian cuisine.

For those who want more we offer an opportunity to visit a museum in Dostoevsky’s last apartment, and for real fans there is a metro-tour and a walk in Alexandro-Nevsky Lavra where the writer is buried. By the way the tombs of P. Tchaikovsky, M. Petipa and other Masters of Art are just nearby.
