Elena Kozlova (1987)

About me
Since 2006 I’ve experienced the pleasures of exploring the big and exciting Saint-Pete from scratch. Being born and raised in another Russian city 2 000 km away, I moved to pursue a university degree and after graduation stayed here to continue my journey.

Now I enjoy living in a 19th century building in an “unpopular central area” (how I like to call it), going places, meeting friends in new and good old bars, discovering new spots within the city and having a corporate job at the same time. I also love music, but not all kinds of music, dark humor and TV series – both British and American, flea markets and second hand shops.

Believe that the best advice a Local can give on places is to avoid mass tourism.

Why Saint Petersburg?
One of my friends once said: “Saint-Petersburg is the new Berlin!” This is probably the main reason why I like it. Saint-Pete combines conservative European architecture with underground small bars with DJ music; it may be seen completely as Tsar’s or industrial in some Russian way.

The city gives me the rare feeling of living in a museum under the open air surrounded by water.

Where can you find me online?
