Kameny Bridge  A bridge close to the Haymarket Square that leads from Raskolnikov's room to  Alyona Ivanova's apartment. In reality, Dostoevsky did not name this bridge; he only referred to it as  "K-----Bridge. An early student or editor identified it incorrectly as Kameny Bridge, but to be  historically correct, to get from Raskolnikov's tiny room to Alyona's apartment, one crosses over the  Kokushkin Bridge. All the streets and building landmarks are very accurate. Dostoevsky was very  careful in his realistic descriptions. For example, students have measured the distance from  Raskolnikov's room to the pawnbroker's flat, and it is actually about 730 paces, the same as  Raskolnikov counted. kutya  A ceremonial dish most commonly served at funerals along with other delicacies.
