My story

My name is Maria and I'm native of Saint-Petersburg. I was born in one of the most beautiful place of St. Petersburg - in Peterhof. All my childhood passed in amazing parks and gardens of Peterhof. Now I'm living in the heart of the city - near the Peter and Paul Fortress. I really love my hometown with all my soul, and I want all guests of St.Petersburg to fall in love with this city.

What do I do here?

I am the director of different events and performances. For several years I have been directing the opening holidays of the summer season in Peterhof and Gatchina palaces. These are really important events for our city. Thanks to my profession I know a lot about the history and culture of the city. I also often work with famous people and can tell about this many funny stories.

What's the best of my city?

Petersburg differs from all cities of the world in its unique atmosphere. It`s a friendly atmosphere filled with creativity and inspiration. This city will understand your mood and fill it with necessary events and people. Petersburg is very multi-faceted. On the one hand, it is the great city with majestic architecture, theatres, squares, churches, and on the other hand, around the corner you can find informal artists and their meeting places, lofts, bars, roofs - space where something modern and interesting always happens.

My tours secret sauce

We will be able to walk through picturesque parks and beaches, see how the Russian emperors lived, enjoy their palaces.
