    About St. Petersburg:

    - St. Petersburg is the cultural capital of Russia. This open-air museum. There are many museums (incl. Hermitage), exhibitions, church, cathedrals, parks and so on - is a paradise for tourists. Our city is building on the banks of the Neva River, the Gulf of Finland, Baltic Sea. Here are more than 300 bridges, and the city is located on the islands, so Petersburg called Venice of the North.
    - You should be prepared to the local climate. In St. Petersburg, it is very changeable. We have a saying "If you want to see all the times of the year this week - come to St. Petersburg."

    - You need to know the Russian language (at any level). In our family no one speaks English and it can be a problem for my family.

  • Help


    - I was trying to learn English, but it is tedious for me. I know a lot of words and can read English, but talking ... something binds me.
    - We have no special requirements for volunteers in addition to the usual rules of conduct. We don't need workers, at least for now. You will have plenty of free time. For me Workaway is a logical continuation my participation in the Community of other popular hosting platform.
