'Like the discovery of love, like the discovery of the ocean, the discovery of Dostoevsky is a memorable event in our lives.' - Jorge Luis Borges

In June 1862, Dostoevsky left Petersburg on his first excursion to Western Europe. Ostensibly making the trip to consult Western specialists about his epilepsy, he also wished to see firsthand the source of the Western ideas he believed were corrupting Russia. Over the course of his journey he visited a number of major cities, including Berlin, Paris, London, Florence, Milan, and Vienna. His impressions on what he saw, "Winter Notes on Summer Impressions," were first published in the February 1863 issue of "Vremya" (Time), the periodical he edited.
