See Gregory Rasputin’s apartment. Rasputin was probably the most mysterious persona in Russian history. He had a limitless influence on the royal family.
Another gorgeous place — the Princess Golitzine’s mansion. She was a Russian prototype of «The Queen of Spades». The title appears in various poems and operas telling a story of a mysterious woman.
Have you heard of the Russian writer Nickolas Gogol? It’s claimed his ghost haunts a house on the Kazan street 39. Now you can see it and find out why.
Fyodor Dostoevsky’s characters also appear on the route we take here and there. Raskolnikov — the ax murderer walked the same streets you do on the quest.
The most mysterious ghost inhabits the Engineering Castle. It was built by Paul I as a fortress. However March 11th, 1801 he was killed there by conspirators. It was a cold-blooded betrayal of his own son.
