Once visited Russia you should experience true local culture: visit an open-air market, buy some fresh beet-root to prepare a real russian BORSCH (beef soup) by YOURSELF. Or maybe you want to try cuisine of imperial times? Or soviet home dishes in a company of russian family? You want to try husky sledding or real russian BANYA (sauna)? Do you want to visit the most beautiful metro stations in the world or explore the city from the rooftops?

I’m a licensed English-speaking tour guide in Saint-Petersburg and its suburbs. I have been guiding for 5 years and I’m totally in love with this job! I studied at Helsinki university (Finland) and St.Petersburg State University where I got my degree in International Relations, have a diploma of Music school and school of arts. I completed the courses of tour guides and got all necessary lisences in the museums of St.Petersburg. As an experienced traveler I can definitely say that St.Petersburg is one of the most beautiful, soulful and elaborately planned cities in the world, it is so european at first sight but has real russian soul deep inside... And I would be happy to show it to you from non-classical and truly russian points of view!
