About Me

Hi! My name is Maxim Achkasov. I am glad you visited this website and are interested in one of the oldest and interesting cities of Europe, Kiev. I have lived here for more than fifteen years and have had the possibility to explore and learn about some of its unique and authentic features.

Personally, I have a great interested in urban places as I believe them to be the reflection of cultural identity, human distinctive character and local values. I like to observe and notice things - the monuments and architecture the locals choose to build and keep; the characteristic style of the exterior and interior designs of the buildings; the materials used to construct them; the ratio of houses, roads, parks and squares; the density of population; the preferred types of transportation; the smell; many other little and yet very important things about cities. As a teacher (I am a full-time Business English Teacher at the Language School English4real) in my tours in Kiev I like to ask the participants questions to provoke their thinking and the development their own perception of the sights we see during our walks.

If you wish to read more about me, you are welcome to my résumé at www.maximachkasov.com or you can contact me and I will be glad to answer any of your questions.
