What you'll do

You will take a journey into the medieval life of Bruges, mainly focusing on the 13th-15th centuries. My story includes the history of the city and the medieval lifestyle, the Hanseatic period, the main characters of medieval Bruges and Flanders and the medieval lifestyle. You will explore the city`s life through a citizen's eyes. How did Bruges smell like? How much would you pay to rent a horse? Did you know there had been taxis? Did you know that in 1487 around 900 stray dogs were killed? I will tell you more what it was like to live in medieval Bruges.

History has always been my passion. My journey into the past started in St. Petersburg where I finished guiding courses. They have given me a strong base to build up my own historical walking tour in the city.
My love for History and traveling brought me to Berlin, where I gave tours for Russian travelers interested in the historical Russian-German connections. Today I want to share a story about my favorite fairytale-like Brugge. Thanks to my guiding experience I have easily investigated the history of the city, focusing on its medieval background, lifestyle, legends, etc.

Dinara was an incredible tour guide! Shw brought her passion for medieval history as well as her deep knowledge of Bruge in order to deliver an immersive and engaging experience. Bruge was transformed from a merely beautiful town to a living, breathing piece of history. Worth every penny and I cannot recommend her enough!

Dinara was very well informed and took us to a lot of interesting sites we wouldn't have come across on our own. We ended the tour feeling as if we knew a great deal more about the city and its history - really excellent. And I got some recommendations on russian literature, which are always welcome! 👍😊

Brilliantly insightful for such a great price. Superb value for money with Dinara who you can tell really cares and knows about her history. We saw sights and were told stories we couldn’t have done on our own. Dinara has a great sense of humour and makes you feel really comfortable and informed throughout. She will take pictures of you in front of the best sights too. My only recommendation would be to add more of a price and to try a local beer as she knows her stuff! 🍺

Очень увлекательная прогулка по живописным местам Брюгге. Было очень интересно послушать истории о городе, проникнуться его атмосферой. Динара прекрасный рассказчик, остались всем очень довольны, рекомендую ее тур.
