Hello! My name is Julia and I have been working as a guide for the last 4 years, but before that, together with my friends, we founded Foodbank in Russia. It was a really nice experience helping all the people in need. Now I continue to participate in non-commercial events. Sometimes my tourists call me "mom" maybe because I worry too much about everything and I like to take care of everyone. So if you have small children or can't walk a lot, there is no problem with me, I am a very flexible person. I live in a truly Soviet apartment and I love to cook, if you want you can be my guest and I can cook for you, that will give you a deeper idea of local Russian life, as well as Red Square and the surroundings. I am also a writer and dream of finishing my book one day. I especially love to travel around Russia as this country is really the largest in the world, and I changed places many times, from Siberia to St. Petersburg for it, I can make the best impression on you in the "non-tourist" season. I love English even though when I was 12 it was the worst in my class, but then I got a teacher who got something from me and made me love this language. When I finished my school I already had a Cambridge University certification with an advanced level. This, along with my other passion which is history, one day I realized that I needed to become a tour guide, and it was the best decision of my life. Fun Facts About Me: 1. I was a ballet dancer for 8 years (I hated classical music with all my heart, but now I love opera) 2. I love basketball and in school I played for the best team in my city (also swimming and climbing, I was a really crazy girl) 3. I am in love with pastry and this is easy to see in me: D 4. I changed 15 apartments in my life and none of them had a good oven! 5. I love running and walking a lot, once I walked 30 miles and it was my absolute record. I can't wait to see you here and show you around the city!

People all around the world heard a lot about Soviets, Stalin and Lenin, Second World war and Cold war. If you are interested in history this is exactly for you. We will discuss all the things that you want to ask while you are in Russia, see the main places that still have the face of the powerful leader, and find out the good things from that time.

In winter VDNH park has the biggest man-made ice rink in the world, it is really worth to see.
