I’ve been working as a teacher of English for some years and recently I’ve also become a tour guide as it’s always been a passion of mine – travelling to different places, communicating with foreigners as well as showing them the most outstanding places of our native country.

I enjoy showing tourists the city of Ekaterinburg with its unique architecture and history where one can spend unforgettable time visiting numerous museums or just walking and exploring the city and places outside Ekaterinburg, like the Border between Europe and Asia or Ghanina Yama to find out more information about the last Russian Royal family.

So, you are always welcome, and I will be really glad to show you our magnificent city – Ekaterinburg!

“Since 2011 I have been making excursions in Ekaterinburg. Since recently I’ve started to pay more attention to themed tours that can help speaking about city living and its beauty in more details. I’ m sure that our city is a real  discovery for tourisrt, an open air museum. It is an industrial city with a great history. It is full of nice architectural monuments of different epoch and styles, from classicism to constructivism.

The aficionados of landscape art will find in Ekaterinburg wonderful samples of this sphere. Landscape tourism that is so popular in Europe is possible in Ekaterinburg either! Industrial history enthusiast will learn much new about its development in the region, its traditions and modern stage. And what about Ekaterinburg legends? And conduits in the old believers’ manors? And gold rush?
