Geocache Description:

He had not far to go; he knew indeed how many steps it was from the gate

of his lodging house: exactly seven hundred and thirty. He had counted

them once when he had been lost in dreams.

That “He” is the very Rodion Raskolnikov from Dostoevsky’s Crime and Punishment, one of the most famous characters in the Russian literature. 

How many steps will it take YOU to get from Raskolnikov‘s house to the old pawnbroker‘s? 
N 59° 55.611 
E 030° 18.762
The first coordinates bring you to the house where Fyodor Dostoyevsky wrote Crime and Punishment. There is a commemorative plaque dedicated to that. 
Last two digits of the largest number  =  D
N 59° 55.658
E 030° 18.679
That will be Raskolnikov‘s lodging house. Now you will see a relief statue and another plaque under it. 
Count the nuber of letters in the very first line. =  R 
N 59° 55.579
E 030° 18.650
Sonyachka Marmeladova‘s house. Number of this house (Yellow, facing the channel)  = S 
Final destination- Alyona Ivanovna‘s house. (By the way, there is an urban legend that tells that even today, in this very house, lives a man who earns his living the same way as Alyona Ivanovna did). 
The location of this house is:
N 59° 55. (R x 30)– 9
E 030° 18. D + S + 52
The cache is a micro, there is no pen, so bring your own!
