My name is Elena, English to Russian translator, English teacher and traveler. In the last 5 years I’ve visited 17 countries looking for adventures and a perfect place to live. But haven’t found myself abroad. Once I came back from South-East Asia trip and decided to take a breath in my hometown, Yekaterinburg. On the weekends, I escaped from the busy city to discover the neighborhood. I was so surprised to find unique countryside areas that have kept the traditional lifestyle. Since then I’ve immersed myself into the Ural region ethnography and became a big fan of Ural culture. I started to run tours for foreign guest around the places that I’ve discovered. I believe that only open-hearted and hospitable village people are the right ones who are able to make an impression of what Russia really is. So that is how Wild About Urals https://www.facebook.com/groups/wildabouturals/ project was born. Join the group and instagram #wild_about_urals and become Wild about Urals!
