Hey, I'm Ivan.
Initially, I started this site because I love Moscow and its nightlife. I wanted to help other people discover it as well. Some of you have probably found me through one of the many nightlife articles on the site. That’s why the site is called Moscownightguide.
But soon I discovered that you can't talk about nightlife forever. But I still had a lot to share with you. I've lived in Russia for over 3 years now. During that time I went through heaven and hell. Sometimes you're up and sometimes down but in Russia, you're never bored. I’ve learned a lot about the country and its people. So I decided to share that with you.
You can learn from my failures and success stories when dating Russian women, learning the Russian language and working and living in Russia. You'll hear the good stories and the bad stories and I hope you'll learn something from all of them. I'm always real and I have nothing to hide. That's why this is the best site about Russia out there. No bullshit, no sugarcoating.
If you want to have success with anything or anyone in Russia, you need to be confident and persistent. Then you’ll see improvement and growth. I work on that every single day. My goal is to inspire you to do the same.
If any of this sounds like something that you can identify with then I hope you join me on my journey. Поехали!
WHO I AM
Number estimated due to frequent intoxication
Originally I'm from Munich but I’ve been living in Moscow for three years now. I started as a student but when I noticed how much I like the vibe of this city, I decided to stay.
I have a love-hate relationship with Russia and Russians. Often I love them, sometimes I detest them. Like with so many guys, Russia hooked me with its beautiful women, its lawless vibe and its endless opportunities. Even if I wished (and sometimes I do), I can’t leave Russia anymore.
Maybe that sounds familiar to some of you. If you have a connection to Russia or you want to make one, I'm sure my site will be useful to you.
It took me thousands of hours to figure out Russian women, how to speak to them, how to speak their language and how to understand their culture. Save yourself the hard work and figure all of that out much more quickly.
