Prior to becoming a tour guide at the turn of the millennium, Elena had worked in the Russian aircraft industry following her graduation from the St. Petersburg State University of Airspace. Over time she decided on a new career path that would bring out her passion for St. Petersburg and allow her to meet new people – and tour guiding was her lucky choice! History and arts have been Elena’s favourites since early childhood and today she continues to share her knowledge and excitement with her guests. She is an expert on the Hermitage Museum which her co-workers jokingly call Elena’s “second home”.
