My story

I was born in Minsk and have lived here most of my life. I have also traveled a lot and lived outside of Belarus, so I know exactly what makes it special. It's a very friendly place with people who are truly special and kind. Wherever I go, I'm always looking forward to coming back home.

What do I do here?

I am a transcreator (I help develop and transport my clients' ideas and concepts from Russian into English) and a teacher with an ultimate passion for English. I'm also a Linguistics nerd and can talk about it for hours :) As a hobby I'm currently learning to write music. I have a passion for healthy living and sports.

What's the best of my city?

Minsk has a very special history that shaped it and made it a unique place. It's nothing like the rest of the world (I lived in the US, Asia and Europe) and I love the things that set it apart. Sometimes it's a time machine (that travels back in time) and sometimes it's insanely forward.

My tours secret sauce

I know how Belarus compares to other places, that's why I'll tell you all about it's hidden gems and it's beautiful imperfections. I know quite a bit about the history of my city, it's buildings and urban legends. I'll also show you the best coffee and pastries to accompany the long walks :)
