Hi, my name is Kristina and I will be happy to show you my amazing country. I am a licensed tour guide in Belarus with 6 years of working experience around the whole country. I have a passion for travelling, I travelled a lot around Belarus, admiring the beauty of my country. Now I can show this beauty to you and share my knowledge about Belarus with you.

During these 6 years I met thousands of tourists from 86 countries (may be you will become 87?:) aged from 10 months (I can't promise you that he was listening carefully:) to 89 years (an energetic gentlemen from SAR with Belarusian roots, remembering partisan WWII songs). I worked a lot with individual travellers as well as big groups, even one corporate group of 800 people. I am keen on my job, it gives me a great opportunity to meet people from all over the world and share with them my love for Belarus.

Belarus is a must-see for all experienced travellers. Usually our country is like a white spot on the European map and quite often people don't know what to expect here. Nevertheless, Belarus is always a pleasant surprise for its visitors. In Belarus you can feel and experience the atmosphere of 3 different times: historical, soviet and modern. This unique mixture won't leave you indifferent. Modern Minsk, medieval castles, charming Grodno, monumental Brest, defensive Stalin line, cultural Dudutki, moving Khatyn, giant Belaz and others are waiting to amaze you.

In my tours I focus on giving insight in the real life of Belarusians as well as explaining our historical background. I always do my best to make your stay here as comfortable as possible. During my tours I try to keep the atmosphere friendly and relaxing. Instead of boring lectures we will have a pleasant conversation in which I will tell you all the interesting things about my country and will answer all your questions. And I hope that you will leave Belarus being my friend. Don't hesitate to write me, share your personal interests and ask any questions. And I will make your Belarusian trip memorable and interesting for you. Let's explore Belarus together!

Had a great day on the castles tour
for Kristina’s tour (Mir and Nesvizh castles)
We enjoyed a long day our driving through the countryside to two very impressive ancient castles. Our guide Alexander spoke excellent English and was very informative about the history of the castles themselves but also about
the history of the country. We had lunch in a comfortable restaurant and were introduced to various local dishes.

If you’re in Minsk do this tour.
Kristina speaks perfect English, great historic knowledge and recites poetry!
She was punctual along with flexible to take time at places or not depending what interested me more. Never felt rushed and we covered a lot.
I learnt a lot about Belarus and Minsk. First class tour with an excellent guide.
Great tour of a unique city
I organised my visit to Minsk at the last minute and thankfully Kristina was able to prepare a great tour of the city. It was a chilly November day so she offered to hire a car for a small extra charge: it was a good idea as we were able to see more in the allotted time and warm ourselves up again between sights. I would recommend Kristina to anyone for her enthusiasm, knowledge of history and willingness to adjust the route to take into account my personal interests.
