The story of ExploRussia, tour operator in Russia
ExploRussia story started in 2012 but let us tell you about the co-founders of ExploRussia Olga, Anna and Ruslan. They met during university times. All of them were born in different parts of the USSR. They come from varied parts of this huge country. From Siberia, the Kazakh steppe and the far, far East. In university, the three of them joined the world’s largest non-profit your-run organization AIESEC. As a result, they travelled a lot, developed a great cultural sensitivity and gained great leadership and professional skills.
While traveling extensively throughout Europe and Asia the guys were asked a lot about Russia by their foreign friends. All these questions were connected with stereotypes, such as “Do bears walk on your streets?”, “How come you’re cold? You’re from Russia!”, or “Is it even possible to get a Russian visa without too much hassle?”
