The Dostoyevsky Walk - James Boobar has been leading SLS Participants on The Dostoyevsky Walk for more than five years now. In this article he takes readers through the intricacies of the Dostoevsky's St. Petersburg, from wandering along the canals and streets of the setting for Crime and Punishment and Dostoevsky's old neighborhood, to following the path of his most famous protagonist, Raskolnikov, from his top floor graffiti-covered stairwell to the old pawnbroker's "residence."
