My story

I'm a native citizen of Saint Petersburg. My great grandmother used to be the student of the Smolny Institute (the most privileged school for girls in the Russian empire). She left memoirs, so I also can share a personal story of someone who witnessed 2 world wars and revolution. All my tours are not only about history but also about modern life.

What do I do here?

I am a professional licensed guide who is deeply in love with this job. Every time when I get back from a trip I look at my city and understand how beautiful it is. I want to share its beauty and its rich history with the guests of Saint Petersburg. The best part of my job is to see the happy faces of my guests inspired by my home city.

What's the best of my city?

My city is only a bit older than 300-years but still, it has a huge story behind. A lot of important historical events happened here. You will be surprised how European is the city. Because the city was mostly created by European masters. Also, my guests are always impressed with how clean the city is.

My tours secret sauce

The first thing my qualification is approved. Being a guide is both my passion and profession. You will get true information about the history and places you visit. Every licensed guide pass exams to get permission to work. Moreover, I am young so don't worry, it won't be boring at all. I live an active social life so I'm also always ready to share with you my favourite places, restaurants, and attractions.
