I was born and raised in a small, modest, quiet province, and after a university moved to breathtaking Saint Petersburg.
It was love at first sight - beautiful and mysterious. What stories stand behind the facades of marvelous palaces?
This question led me to finish a guide school five years ago. Since that time I've collected not dresses as Empress Elizabeth did, but stories and it'll be a pleasure for me to share them with you. Let's make a bet you can't fall in love with Saint Petersburg?)
