Hello! My name is Elena. I am the guide for you in the Ural region — they often say that the first Russian settlements were created here. I work as a guide since 1998 when I began working with French speaking tourists. I also speak English and it is my second foreign language, which I use to communicate with tourists. I have visited many different countries and I am passionate about meeting people, learning more about other cultures and traditions, that's why I'm alway looking forward to the new international tours. My hobby is painting, and when I have free time I usually go to the countryside, where I have a wooden 19th century house surrounded by nature. It's the only place where I can truly relax from the daily routine.
