Ask a question

I have been interested in history from my childhood. As I grew up, my interest turned into a hobby first, and then into a profession. I truly believe that the only way to do something well is to love it and put your heart into it. I love my country, its culture, people and history of all periods, both good and bad. I love to make connections between the old times and the present
day life, because, would not you agree, that knowing the country is not just about reading a book on the history of Middle Ages?
