An unusual story about Raskolnikov’s wanderings. We follow his steps in modern Petersburg.
More than 100 photos, 12 video timelaps. Extracts from the novel and quotes from historical documents.

You’ll be brought to the very ‘hell’ of Petersburg, to the places where ‘a young man came out of the garret in which he lodged in S. Place and walked slowly, as though in hesitation, towards Kokushkin bridge’. From this minute your route from crime to punishment - the way Raskolnikov came it - starts. You’ll walk through the panoramas of courtyards were the characters of the novel lived, through the embankments and squares, and you’ll inevitably get to the place the old pawnbroker was murdered. The travel is provided with extracts from the Dostoyevsky’s novel. Also the application tells about places connected with the author himself and places he lived when writing his novel.
