Some additional source material for an article[edit]

Fyodor Dostoevsky made numerous mentions of Gostiny Dvor in his works, identifying them in Crime and Punishment for example as places where items of symbolic significance were bought.

"The Gostiny Dvor is an indoor mall with lots of small shops".<ref>Deborah A. Martinsen, Constance Garnett, ''Notes From Underground, The Double, And Other Stories'' (2003), p. 429.</ref>

"The unfortunate effect of Gostiny Dvor is that it does not blend in with the otherwise picturesque panorama of the area. Typical of nineteenth-century Russian provincial life, the function of Gostiny Dvor was more social than commercial".<ref>Eugenie Harris Gross, Jeffrey Gross, ''The Soviet Union: A Guide for Travelers'' (1977), p. 291.</ref>
