    Hi! My name is Julia. Born in Russia, I've become a passionate lover of Sweden and everything about and around it. That's why I've spent half of my life studying the Swedish mentality, traditions and history... At the moment I work with various projects, some of which involve teaching Swedish, guiding in Sweden, writing books about Sweden - and that's what I'd like to share with you: my knowledge of all the secrets I've discovered so far. What makes me so different from other guides? Well, here are some examples: - I've written 3 thick travel guides over Sweden, Stockholm and Scandinavia, all of them with tons of fascinating facts - I've been guiding in Sweden since 2000 - I create excursions for travelers from all around the world. - I give lectures about Swedish mentality and customs

  • What you will see and do

    Make yourself comfortable in front of your computer and follow me to the least known places of Stockholm - or learn to pay attention to the details. In 1,5 hours you'll find out where Sweden's first rider monument on a horse stands or the true story behind the small lanes.

    I'll tell you what the traces and marks on the asphalt mean. We'll see the stone marking the border between the two historical regions. We'll try to read the facades and learn the truth about the sewing system in the old times. Was it really possible to "smell Stockholm from miles away"?

    What could the portals tell us? And what can be found under the bridges?

    Where does the prime minister of Sweden live? And whom do the mascarons on the Parliament building represent?

    Where did the kings' lovers - both secret and official - live? And what could the royals do for their love?

    Let's meet online and talk about it!

    Julia is a delightful storyteller and took us on an exciting and insightful tour of Old Town Stockholm, Sweden! It was really neat to learn about different aspects of Stockholm's history and architecture from a local. She was incredibly thorough and playful and covered a lot of interesting local lore!

    It’s a great experience. Julia is very passionate about Swedish culture, and she’s a superb storyteller. She answered all my questions and introduced me to Swedish traditions and the beautiful city-it really feels like walking down the streets of Stockholm. I can’t wait to visit Sweden in person in the future.

    Julia has so much knowledge about Stockholm's old town and its history, the kind of knowledge that my local Swedish friends don't even know! Stockholm is one of my favorite cities in the world but even after many visits to this beautiful city, I did not know even one thing Julia mentioned in this experience! When I visit Stockholm next time, I know I will look at the city very differently! Highly recommended for everyone even if you've visited Stockholm before!
