A girl from Petersburg… one of those who were brought to museums at an early age, whose best childhood memories are the fountains of Peterhof and the Nutcracker ballet, who, being university students, used to spend free time in the Hermitage (yet,we often had classes there). The soul of Petersburg is in its people, and the city tells stories about them, revealing their secrets to those who want to listen. How do I talk to my city? Education in human sciences and linguistics, art history courses, infinite curiosity, and my love for the city I have been sharing with my guests for 2 years already
