The first thing you notice as you come out of the Sennaia Ploshchad' metro station is that this is not a typical tourist attraction. Terraced kiosks form the perimeter of a mass of peddlers, drunks and a general assortment of St. Petersburg citizens. The ramshackle square is both a hive of history and an unpredictable display of life here and now. This is where Raskolnikov in Dostoevskii's novel 'Crime and Punishment' used to prowl. Anyone wanting a change from the city's architectural glories can come here and see the real Petersburg in action.
