F. M. DOSTOEVSKY - PRISONER OF THE PETER AND PAUL FORTRESS

   On April 23, 1849, the aspiring young writer Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoevsky was arrested as one of the participants of the revolutionary circle and spent the next eight months in the walls of the main political prison of the Russian Empire - the Secret House of the Alekseevsky Ravelin of the Peter and Paul Fortress.
   The conclusion, the subsequent staging of the execution on the Semenovsky parade ground and the Siberian exile became the most important turning points in the fate of the writer, influencing his further worldview and creativity.
