Meet your host, Ekaterina

Host on Airbnb since 2013
  • Identity verified
Well... I'm a professional fashion photographer, moved to Istanbul in 2012. At the same time, I opened for myself Airbnb's World and started to receive guests at my home. Very quickly I became a "local guide" for my guests. I fell in love to show not touristic Istanbul, where still now lives local people, what they are thinking, doing, eating. And of course, as I am a photographer I know a lot of "secret places" with unbelievable views and amazing food!
