Hey there, this is Nick, your localie in Moscow ❤️ I'm a startup founder (ex IT project manager at IKEA and Ford), a world citizen, and a passionate traveler who just came back home after 2.5 years living in The Netherlands. If you want to learn more about me — hit my profile pic. This time I'm gathering a warm community of expats who live in Moscow for a one-day cozy road trip to Russia's origin — a 1000-year old historical town of Vladimir, just 200 km away from the capital. Personally, I lived in Vladimir for 7 years, graduated from school, and from the university there. My parents are still based in Vladimir. I know the area inside out, and will be happy to show you the best out of it in a short one-day road trip! Many people call Vladimir as 'the origin of the Russian state'. Indeed, in 1000x-1200x Vladimir was the capital of the kingdom (Grand Duchy of Vladimir) that controlled a major part of the modern European part of Russia, but also Ukraine and Belarus. Some ancient buildings are preserved there up until nowadays with an authentic vibe you would never experience in Moscow. If you're interested to see how our country looked like centuries ago, explore the old architecture of the 1100s and 1800s, or just taste a mysterious vibe of authentic Russian province, come and join us! Btw, no historical BS during the tour, I promise! Only interesting, juicy facts, cozy cafes, breathtaking views, and architecture. I'm a hipster guy who lived in Rotterdam, remember? 😂 I will be renting a van with 8 seats, so we can easily access all the hidden gems and won't be tied to the schedule of public transport. We will leave Moscow early on Sunday, around 7 am. I'll pick you up in your neighborhood and later when we're back I'll drop you as close to your place as I can. The detailed agenda with the photos is available in the 'Day 1' tab.

Welcome here! I’m truly a world citizen and it’s hard to explain my origin. Being born in Ukraine, raised there, I moved to Russia when I was 13. Here my home was in 3 different towns: Vladimir where I studied at school and later at the university, St.Petersburg where I started my career, and finally Moscow where I continued my corporate path in the country offices of Ford and later IKEA. In 2017, I moved to The Netherlands being promoted to headquarters of my employer. After 2.5 years in that w...
