I am a Moscow-addict. Water from the Moscow river runs in my veins. A walk in Moscow for me is a cure-all. I charge my batteries when I walk along the streets of Moscow. I cannot stop studying its history. Every time I discover something new, buildings open their secrets step by step. Studying your city is always a quest, a puzzle, an exciting game.
I was born in Moscow region, so every street reminds me of something from my school or university years. I studied linguistics and cross-cultural communication at university and then worked as a translator and interpreter.
Guiding has always been my beloved hobby. First I guided for my numerous foreign friends. Then I made a major decision, did a guiding course and became a guide.
I love studying new languages and travelling. It helps me be unbiased and open-minded. I can also speak Italian and German (it was my second language at university and I studied one term in Germany). I also learned some French, Spanish, Portuguese and Turkish for fun. Besides, I teach English, Italian and German. I am fond of photography, painting, reading, cinema, sports, dancing and gardening. And now my biggest passion is my little daughter.
I enjoy sharing my love for the city, I am eager to show the true Russia without stereotypes and kitsch.
