How to participate
Meet your guide, Roman
Hi! My name is Roman, and I was born and raised in Pyatigorsk. I’m an English language teacher by trade but my passion is guiding people around my beautiful city and the nearby Caucasus Mountains. Our city has a unique place in Russian history with its local mineral waters and becoming a “destination” for vacationers during the Soviet Union. I hope you’ll join me in experiencing what makes Pyatigorsk such a great place to live, quirks and all!
