The memorial apartment of one of Russia's most renowned and prolific writers is conveniently located just one block away from Vladimirskaya metro station. Dostoyevsky lived here, his last apartment in St. Petersburg, between 1878 and 1881 and the flat is still filled with memorabilia relating to his life and work. Dostoyevsky based many of his stories and novels in St. Petersburg, especially in the Vladimirsky region of the city where his apartment is located. In celebration of his literary genius, the city erected a monument to the great writer in the spring of 1997, not far from Vladimirskaya metro station and from the Dostoevsky Memorial Museum.
The museum also hosts occasional exhibitions of contemporary art.
How to get there? Take the metro to Vladimirskaya Station, exit the station and turn right, and then walk for one block and you'll find the museum on the corner of the building on your right.
