SAFS Founder & Storyteller
Hello fellow Russophiles and travellers!
Many years ago, I packed my bags to visit Russia in search of new adventure and a better understanding of the language and culture. Unexpectedly, I fell in love with St. Petersburg and vowed to come back. I stuck to that vow and have now lived here for many years and am a proud ambassador to the city.
St. Petersburg is such a beautiful and amazing city with a unique feel and something new to offer everyone. I make it my mission to continuously push its boundaries, to find hidden treasures and new stories to share, and to express my love for St. Pete by offering unique experiences and the best this city has to offer.
SAFS is an acronym for Ships Are For Sailing. It comes from one of my favorite quotes, “A ship in the harbor is safe, but that’s not what it was built for.” For many, coming to Russia can be a nerve-racking experience but it doesn’t have to be! Let us take the anxiety or guesswork out of your trip and plan an unforgettable experience for you.
Explore, dream, discover!
