Being born and raised in Siberia, Natalia left her native town when she was 18 and arrived in St. Petersburg, a city where the dreams come true. She graduated from Saint Petersburg State University with a degree in linguistics. Studying and following her dream to become an English-Russian interpreter, Natalia also attended additional courses in history and fine arts, as they always were her passion. When she was a Junior student, Natalia decided to use her wide knowledge of Russian culture and history and become a local tour guide. Eight years later, she is still guiding all over St. Petersburg, including special accreditations by the State Hermitage and Peterhof Museum Complex, as well as other St. Petersburg museums. Natalia is passionate about traveling, museums and local culture experience, and she is eager to share her interests with any visitors.
