I’m that person, who addicted to people, dogs and Istanbul ♥️



My story

I moved to Istanbul a few months ago, but I was in love with this city for a long time. I was traveling to Istanbul for 2,5 years, and all of my time I spent here it was with modern Turkish people, modern places, bars, galleries, exhibitions, concerts etc.

What do I do here?

I was born in Siberia, in the middle of Russia. I was working as an event-manager, public relations specialist and marketing specialist. I was in love with all kind of activities. Everything, but not staying at home. I organized various film festivals, concerts, conferences. I opened and launched the bars. I can talk endlessly about my experience.

What's the best of my city?

I’m in love with modern Turkey and Istanbul. I’m exited of people here, of places and all this atmosphere. I like this small hidden streets with coffee shops, I like how people taking care about this. I’ll show to everyone how they are spending their free time and I’ll show their life.

My tours secret sauce

I have a coooooool and politely dog, I moved with him from Russia and sometimes I can take him to walk with us. He is Japanese breed Shiba Inu, he is the cutest guy ever. And btw, I know a lot of owners of bars, hotels, rooftop places and sometimes I can show this places from the local view, we can get to the hidden places. If you will need any help for staying in Istanbul, to rent an apartmnet etc, feel free to contact me.
