I was born and bred in St.Petersburg. Growing up in the city center I developed love to its perfect architecture forms, windy evenings and white summer nights. As a teen I studied languages, history and literature and sometimes skipped classes and spent hours browsing the wide rooms of Hermitage or secretly going to some artsy french movie. After I had graduated I decided to explore the world and spent 10 years working, studying and traveling in Southern Africa and Asia. This year I returned to my home city, which after all the wonders of the world that I have seen I still find the most charming and irresistible of all. I have also made a resolution to go deeper in my urban exploration and show the best of my city to interested visitors. Localie for me is a combination of everything I love - art, urban exploring, meeting new people and having some fun discovering the best of Saint Petersburg. I would love to take you off the beaten track and explore famous well coutryards, look for hidden street art and walk into beautiful old buildings, visit trendy art spaces and taste some local snacks. If you are in the mood for party, you can definitely count me in.
