About Me


I am an independent scolar who defended the thesis and keep writing some crazy things about folklore of dreams and dream-telling in Ukraine=)
This is the official part of my life and I do like it a lot. But I am also fond of traveling, planing crazy trip projects, taking photos and cultural exchanging...
I like visiting ruined castles which helps you to fill the spirit of the real history, I'm keen on rock climbing and dancing.
I'd been breakdancing for 6 years and even though I'm out of this now I can't stay quiet hearing funk music=) I can't imagine myself without mountains, caves, ethnic culture, learning languages, good books, deep music, new journeys and interesting people.


The world must think about peace and love, not about war.
Antiputin philosophy, in a word.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


At this moment we can host but not regularly. As I really want to be helpful, I can show you around not only in Kyiv, it's not hard to catch me in other Ukrainian cities especially in Lviv.
I want to learn other cultures as much as it possible, as a folklorist I always keen on some historic things and old believes so if you want to see and to know more about some "unofficial" places in Ukraine I'll be really happy to be your guide


I'm always free to show you around in any time when I'm in Kyiv or other places which are familiar to me)
I surfed in different countries and it was amazing!)
