About @MuscoviteVT


Total rebranding!
No more browsing the university stylistics guide in search the one fitting word out of 30+ synonyms, no more writing thorough tips which no one reads.
Adieu the good old Virtual Tourist’s Muscovite who always tried to have things right and proper and never got as far as the top 1000.
Having spent quite a few thrilling years as a licensed travel guide, got tired of groups, museums and rigid programmes and now enjoy independent travelling with home exchange flats, parks, flea markets, remote villages and other free pleasures as my highlights.
However, if you need help working out a sensible itinerary, or looking for destinations ‘off the beaten path’, or general advice on how to survive gracefully in unwelcoming circumstances – head this way!

  • Hobbies:

    Fancy travelling on budget and giving sensible advice how to do it

  • Favourite places:

    Nice and Côte d'Azur, Stockholm, Ventimiglia, Minsk, Brussels

I do it best, or I don’t do it

I positively like Minsk, and especially their Opera House, visit several times a year. My nightmare is that Westerners now flood the place – now that Byelorussians had waved the visa – and it becomes crowded, ‘touristy’ and extravagantly dear!

Ask MuscoviteVT a question about Minsk.


I first came to Stockholm as a Swedish interpreter, then as a travel guide, and now I am visiting now and them by myself, when I have time and money – neither happens very often, though!

Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur

First visited Nice in 2006 and never found a better place for a holiday. Not that I am going to stage a Peter Mayle, but through all those years I had piled a lot of experience and even more photos which I am not sure I will have time to upload from my personal site. On the contrary, my most easy-going itineraries will appear here as soon as I figure out where to put them up. But don’t ask me how to see Cannes, Menton and Grasse in one day, I don’t do non-science fiction!
