What awaits you
Literary Mecca of St. Petersburg For three centuries of the history of St. Petersburg, it was Vasilievsky Island, conceived by Peter I as the embodiment of the dream of a European capital, that was the center of urban, Russian and world literature. On a walk, we will find a whole scattering of addresses associated with the galaxy of writers and poets. Our invisible companions will be Anthony Pogorelsky, Nikolai Leskov, Fyodor Dostoevsky, Anna Akhmatova, Vadim Shefner and other cult authors. And we will certainly talk about each one, revealing interesting details of their biographies and work
Vasilievsky Island and its non-fictional plots In the labyrinths of lines on Vasilyevsky Island, we will analyze interesting details of the life of St. Petersburg Germans, discuss the life of artists of the mid-19th century and see what artifacts of the past have survived to this day. You will visit the narrowest street of the city, learn how the "boy Alyosha", who did not teach his lessons, managed to be the best in the class, guess the names of ZND Avenue and Happy Line. And of course, you will be conquered by the story of a poor limping girl who turned into a fatal beauty, because of whom the most talented poets of the Silver Age met in a duel.
