I'm Oxana, you soul guide in Vyborg.

I like to travel, look at cities and countries from interesting points and find unique pieces. I'm interesting in Scandinavia. Fond of architecture, especially moderny and functionalism.

My excursions are interactive and immerse as much as possible into the atmosphere of the city. I help guests get acquainted with Vyborg with all their senses and develop awareness, attention, aesthetic taste, broaden their horizons.

I am happy to share my research and discoveries with guests on full-time and online excursions!
