Ekaterina L.

Saint-Petersburg, Russia

Hello and welcome to Saint-Petersburg! My name is Ekaterina or simply Kate and I am a local guide in Saint-Petersburg.

I have licences for all major museums of this city and I am accredited by the government of Saint-Petersburg. Moreover, I am absolutely in love with the city and would like to share my knowledge and admiration with guests!

I was born in this city and have always been interested in history and communicating with people, and, when I started studying English under my private teacher (she was a brilliant tour guide), I learned of such a profession. For several years I've been doing tours in English for individuals, families and groups.

Saint-Petersburg is a magnificent city which was founded 3 centuries ago as a trade port. But this time was enough for the architects to convert it into the Northern Venice or the Gem of the North.

For me the chance to show the guests this beautiful city and its environs, talk about prominent people who lived here (for example, Catherine the Great, F. Dostoyevsky, Karl Faberge, A. Popov, D. Mendeleev), recommend a good restaurant or a café is a great honor and pleasure.

I invite you to get acquainted with Saint-Petersburg and will do my best to make your stay in this city interesting, comfortable and informative!
