About me

I am a writer, and I work in the genre of fantasy. If you want to turn a walk around Kiev into an exciting adventure with heroes and dragons, then join me on mystical and pagan excursions.

I will show you special places in which you will feel vibrations of Kiev and understand why this city is considered to be the City of Witches.

Either we can combine a pagan excursion with a religious one, and you will find out how pagan traditions were transformed into Christian ones.

You’ll find out where modern pagans are gathering, and you’ll see Kiev from an unknown side. Maybe you’ll even see some rituals.

I am an art critic and I it’ll be a pleasure for me to show you the most impressive murals of Kiev. And I can escort you to an art gallery, a theatre or an opera.

If you are searching for inspiration, then I’ll show you places where you definitely can catch the bird of inspiration by its tail.

If you are serious about your wishes, then we can walk to magical points. And all your dreams will come true!

If you’ve been in Kiev before, I’ll take you to the streets, which ordinary tourists don’t know. For instance, we can walk through unknown streets of Kontraktova, where you will see stunning examples of architecture of the 19th century.

I invite you to become a time traveller. Will you join me?

The Price for the group of:

The unforgettable day exploring Kiev because of a wonderful guide!
I have just come back from the most incredible day exploring Kiev. My guide Zhenya made this trip unforgettable for me. I booked a local guide as I wanted to see as much of the city as I could in a short time period but also to see a hidden side of Kiev and get to know from a local more about the spirit of the city. Zhenya's organisation, knowledge, friendliness and flexibility were perfect. She covered all the unusual sites I wanted to see with an effortless inclusion of information and photo stops of the must see sites and little gems she knew I would enjoy. I could not have asked for more!

I had a day wonderful day with Zhenya and my 8 year old daughter in Kiev. Zhenya tailored the day to our requirements and we saw everything that appealed to my daughter and off the normal tourist routes. She was full of informative quirky information and made the day fun for us both. I can recommend her highly enough, if you visit Kiev she is your go to guide. Thank you again Zhenya it was a day we will never forget.

I was in Kiev for a day on my own looking for someone to help me get to know the city , but not provide a 'canned tour'. I was also seeing some of the main sights separately.
Zhenya was so helpful - wanting to make my day 'super special'. I told her some ideas & she gave me suggestions.
Emailing back & forth was fast, courteous & easy. Had a most fantastic day! Zhenya has great stories, lots of knowledge & wonderful sense of humour!
She paced herself according to my needs ie we stopped when I was tired (not as young as her!) & motivated me with delightful stories about Kiev!
We covered different places including history, art & my desire to see the metro! She was delightful- & I would recommend her & the company whether you want overview or insider info on this delightful city. Only sorry I can't stay longer or have her take me around some more.

I had a great time with my guide Zhenya, who transported me to the past of Kiev and shared with me a lot of its History and surprisingly the awesome (magical) vibrations of Kiev. Highly recommended!!

My wife and I had a 2 hour tour of Kiev and its key cathedrals with Zhenya in English. It was a great introduction to the city and its history. Zhenya was able to answer all of our questions about the development of the city and region with a great deal of knowledge, and she even pointed out several hidden sculptures while we walked that we would have otherwise missed.
It was extremely easy to coordinate with Zhenya online ahead of the tour and she explained everything very clearly while we walked.

I did a three hour walking tour of the city with Zhenya. She took me to all the main sights, like St Volodymyr’s Cathederal, St Sophia’s and St Michael’s but also hidden treasures like the Children’s Landscape Park. Zhenya was really friendly and knew all about the city and it’s history. She even took me to a great place for lunch! I’d really recommend taking this tour.
