The exhibition entitled "Dostoevsky's Copenhagen" has started at the Russian Center for Science and Culture in the capital of Denmark. It has become one of the events timed to coincide with the 200th anniversary of the writer. The Dostoevsky Salon has been launched on the same day. Its aim is to bring together Danish researchers and admirers of the Russian writer, according to the website of the World Coordination Council of Russian Compatriots.

Photographs and drawings depicting Fyodor Dostoevsky's visit to Denmark in 1865 are displayed at the exhibition. The writer visited the Assistens cemetery in Copenhagen, where the founder of existentialism, writer and philosopher Søren Kierkegaard is buried. 

Researchers of Dostoevsky's work and writers are going to take part in the salon. A series of events dedicated to the anniversary of Fyodor Dostoevsky will be held by the representative office of Rossotrudnichestvo in Denmark in cooperation with the Assistance cultural center  and the Danish theater of performance arts.
