Coming from the south of France, Marie has been in love with Russia since her teens. In 2015 with her degree in Russian culture and Russian language in the pocket she got a job as a French teacher and moved to Ekaterinburg.

Marie is our local French expert in places to go in Ekaterinburg. She knows the city venues ‘comme sa poche’ and keeps an eye on interesting cultural events taking place. Besides that she likes hiking, skiing and cats.

Marie has travelled a lot around Russia from great Moscow, Saint Petersburg and Kazan to smaller Samara, Saratov, Syktyvkar. She did hiking in the Altai mountains and went ice-cycling on lake Baikal, but the Ural mountains take special place in her heart.

If you want to get a first-hand experience of Russia in fluent French then Marie is a guide for you.
