Saint Petersburg, Russia

Hello! My name is Elena and I am a fully licensed tour guide in St.

Petersburg. Being a native of this city I am very happy to introduce one of the most beautiful and fascinating cities in the world to you! You will definitely fall in love with its Imperial atmosphere and its rich cultural Heritage.
I am a graduate of St. Petersburg State University and Gidintour Training School for Guides. I have been offering a wide variety of tours in and around the city for more than 25 years. I can arrange standard tours as well as customized tours designed to meet your specific wants and needs. If you want to see how Russian nobility lived in the 19 th century, I can take you to Yusupov Palace. In case you are interested in the development and history of jewelry art in Russia, we can visit the Faberge museum. So, there is a great variety of tours which I am happy to offer to you!
Since I have lived all my life in St. Petersburg, I can tell you about its modern life as well as all the changes which it has witnessed since the Soviet time.
In case you need any assistance or recommendations concerning a visit to a doctor, going to the theatre or a restaurant or just help with directions, I am at your disposal.
