Andrey Zakharenko
Co-Owner, Partner, Travel Specialist

I have been traveling most of my life. Born in Moscow, the capital of Russia, I started traveling at a very early age, from Finland to Japan to London and many stops in between. My love for my homeland never faded and this love is one of the main reasons I have devoted over 15 years of my life to Russian Connections.
