My story

I moved to Moscow seven years ago when I decided to get my master's degree at the Higher School of Economics. I was absolutely captivated by the city, its vibe, architecture, cultural scene, and travel opportunities. So I got myself a job and decided to stay for good.

What do I do here?

After getting my master's degree I decided to give my education a chance and started working in the field of economic studies. I quickly realized that my passion lies in working with people and building relations. Now I'm focused on project implementation in social and cultural areas.

What's the best of my city?

Moscow is a city of a great scale. It has architectural monuments that will blow you away, several "cities inside the city" and not one but two kremlins. And yet it is quite cozy too. My favourite thing to do is to wander the quiet historical streets and feel transported to another era.

My tours secret sauce

I am quite a culture nerd and I like to collect interesting facts about places. So I went and got myself an art history degree. And now I can't help but comment on architecture during walks :) I always know what is going on in the city culturally and can recommend places to visit. Plus I can be your private guide in the largest museum of European art in Moscow - The Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts (my personal favourite place of culture).
