Katya Boyarskaya was born in St. Petersburg into a theatrical family, graduating as a drama theater critic and historian from the College of Theatrical Arts. Besides theater, English language has always been her passion. In Soviet times Katya’s hobby was guiding for Intourist during vacations, as a way to meet native English speakers. During perestroika, her hobby became her job; she has worked with MIR for more than 20 years, as a guide, tour manager, and now director of the St Petersburg office.
