Lonely Planet review

The author’s family lived on the 1st floor of this riverside house, which has been lovingly maintained and still contains many original pieces. Dostoevsky’s desk has copies from his mazelike drafts, and you can see his doodles on the pages. His bookcase holds books from the period, and his wife’s bedroom contains her bed, chest and other personal items. An English-language handout available at the ticket office provides details of what you can see in each of the rooms.
