Meet your activity leader: George
Hello! My name is George. I was born in Saint-Petersburg and love this little piece of Europe in Russia. I have worked as a professional guide for 5 years. I truly love my city and can show you beautiful palaces, museums and some secret places: inner spaces of historical houses, roofs, channels, bars and communal flats as well.

Besides studying international economics at university, in my spare time I am keen on showing foreigners my favourite places of the city. Traveling, music and communication are a huge part of my life. I am glad to share amusing facts about the city and various interesting stories that happened here which you wouldn't have heard anywhere else.
