This is the apartment where Dostoevsky wrote The Brothers Karamazov. It's been restored to look as it did when he died here in 1881.

It was not easy to find the entrance as the museum doesn't stand out among the apartment blocks which all look so similar, and it is half floor down ground level. But once inside, everything's just fine. They had re-constructed his apartment the way it...More

They've done a great job restoring Dostoevsky's last dwelling, giving you a feel of how he lived and where he wrote. There are very informative cards in each room if you don't want the audio guides.

Dostoevsky's last apartment. If you are not a fan, it may not be of huge interest. Still, it's a pleasant enough way to spend an hour or so. There are a handful of original items. The staff is knowledgable and friendly.

Response from Svetlana R | Reviewed this property |
No, the entrance fee is 200 rubles (nearly 3 euro) for foreign citizens. You can also buy an audio guide for 250 rubles (3,5 euro). So, yes, I would say it's almost free :)
