Summary/Abstract: The article is a repercussion of the publication in the present issue of “The Unknown Dostoevsky” of the article “One more version of the address of the “old pawnbroker’s house” by Dunaeva Yu. A. The other authors’ standpoints of discovering the addresses of imaginary characters of Dostoevsky in St.Petersburg are examined here. The general problems that condition the variety of topographic versions offered by researchers are also analyzed. Both virtues and drawbacks of Dunaeva’s article are studied, as well as different methodological approaches to the problem of the artistic topography of St. Petersburg prose of Dostoevsky are assessed. The opinion on an essential, unavoidable ambiguity of some topographic indications in the novel “Crime and Punishment” is proved.
