Hi, my name is Kate. I am from Moscow
While traveling around the world I always try to compare my city as a tourist destination with other big cities. “Is it comfortable to commute within the city?” “Are there enough English signs in the centre?” things like that.
The cultural life here is flourishing; there is no lack of historical heritage. At the same time, for non-Russian speakers traveling alone without a group and with no guide (this is how I like to travel), visiting Moscow might be challenging. A great city venue may not be visible or marked for tourists. Instead, it might be hidden with no entrance sign in English.
One day I decided to start helping tourists orientate themselves in Moscow, to plan their trip and to travel independently on their own, and to travel on a budget.
