No one has depicted the gloomy yellow-walled St.Petersburg like Fyodor Dostoyevsky in his iconic Crime and Punishment novel. Anyone born in the city knows that Kolomna and Sennaya and dark places to be walked by quickly to avoid meeting Raskolnikov or the pawnbroker. You will get the appropriate mood after visiting the writer's apartment museum, where he lived and worked. The staff is really passionate, so we recommend a guided tour – the collection is not that big but becomes very meaningful when the guides start telling you new facts and anecdotes from the writer’s life not some routine you’ve learnt at school.
