Hello. My name is Slava. I was born and raised in Odessa. For a long time I dreamed of becoming a historian, but I also wanted to be a surgeon. Surgery won, but the story has remained my hobby and a part of my work. Now I teach student history of medicine. I love to travel. In each new city, I’m interested in talking to the locals and their real life stories, to learn how local people live, their favorite places that are not spoiled by the flow of tourists. After all, this can not be read in any guide. Now I work as a journalist and keep my blog in online magazines about the history of Odessa and the development of medicine in it. 5 years I have been showing just such Odesa to my friends and city guests.
