Fyodor Dostoevsky lived in flats all over the city, mostly in Sennaya (p96), but his final residence is this 'memorial flat'. Dostoevsky lived herefrom 1878 until he died in 1881. The apartment remains as it was when the Dostoevsky family lived here, including the study where Fyodor wrote The Brothers Ka-ramazov, and the office of Anna Grigorievna, his wife, who recopied, edited and sold all of his books. Two rooms of the museum are devoted to his novels: literature fans will want to pay close attention to the map of Dostoevsky's Petersburg, which details the locations of characters and events in his various works. A rather gloomy likeness of the man himself (as if there's any other kind) is just outside the Vladimirskaya metro station.
