I was born and raised in the former USSR.
When I was 10, my Dad, the Director of the Scientific Research Institute, went abroad as a part of an official delegation, which was quite unique in a gated country. He returned back with a strong feeling that it was a must for his daughter to speak English. It determined not only my career, but my whole life.
I have lived in Moscow most of my life. I love and know my city and I am happy to show it to our guests. I have been a fully-licensed guide-interpreter in all most famous Moscow museums and a lecturer on Russian Art and History for 19 years. I am a member of the International Association of Guides-Interpreters and Tour managers.
I have also been translating at Burdenko Neourosurgical Institute, Moscow, for 10 years. It is far from art, history and politics which I like so much. But I do it with a great pleasure since it is a completely different and a very interesting sphere of knowledge.
My super concern is peace all over the world.
I am sure that “Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.” All my clients keep on telling me that their visit to Moscow have freed them from many preconceptions formed by mass media, they have never expected the tour to be so educational and so much fun. You are most welcome to discover YOUR Moscow! I will do my best to help you:)
