Privyet (hi) Dear Visitors of St. Petersburg,
My name is Elina (Welcome to Russia, you will meet here many Elenas, Leenas, Elinas in English called Helens :) I am a licenced tour guide in St. Petersburg and its suburbs. I was born and grew up in the downtown of Leningrad. I LOVED wandering around the CITY with my friends not knowing that in future my job would be tightly connected with it :) I fell in love with my city and after school I chose Art history as my major. Confucius once said: "Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life", so I am I am a happy person :)
You will see main touristic sights of interest together with everyday life of its citizens. I can share my childhood memories of the changes our country went through during the transition from the Soviet Union to today's Russia. Being a mom I know what it means to travel with a little one and I will try to make your trip with children as comfortable as possible :)
I will be glad to meet you at the airport, train station, sea port, advice a hotel, arrange a vehicle and tour tickets for visa-free shore tourists. Ask me about theater tickets as foreign agencies sell tickets to our famous ballets double or triple price which is very sad. I am open to hear your preferences and I will do my best to make your tour memorable. Come and I will share my love to the city with you!
Welcome to our wonderful CITY. St. Petersburg is charming! You will LOVE it!
