About me. Education. I am a native Petersburger and my whole life is connected to the city. I graduated from the Herzen State Pedagogical University, History department. As a historian, I am doing Leningrad blockade theme. Guide since 2014. History, St Petersburg and people are my main inspirations.
To be a Petersburger is… Being so far away from the city to remember who you are and where you are from.
How I became a guide. To say the truth, I didn’t like excursions at all from my childhood as I didn’t understand what for to give so much boring information. But when in 2014 I suddenly started to work as a guide – first on the Valaam island, then at the «St Isaac’s Cathedral» Museum and in the city – my attitude was to share knowledges of the history and art in an easy way. At the same time I am convinced that it isn’t correct to «feed» tourists only with legends and myths. I prefer scientific approach and use only competent and certified resources.
Favourite place in St Petersburg. Embankments under bridges. Yards.
