MEET OUR TEAM | Our People and Their Stories

Continuing our series of interviews with our Team, today we present Elena Kravetskaya, our Russia and Eastern Europe Product Manager. She tells us about what motivates her the most in Germany.

Dobriy Den and Hello - Elena Kravetskaya

Elena was born and raised deep inside Siberia in Russia.

"It's been a long and rewarding journey. I graduated from the Tourism Academy in St. Petersburg - the most fascinating city in my home country. Living and working in Berlin at the crossroads of East and West has always been my dream. I have now been 5 years with i‑contravel as Product Manager. What I love about my job is the enthusiasm of my  Eastern European group customers about traveling to Germany."

Elena believes that the large variety of sightseeing attractions make Germany a favorite destination in Europe. Beautiful country sites and magnificent cities full of history. "What makes Germany special is the cultural diversity and openness. Not to mention high quality guest services and the famous 'German perfectionism'. Locals welcome visitors from all over the world with openness and appreciation."

Berlin - the German capital - in Elena's view is a "city full of contrasts" and her favorite: Hectic, multicultural, trendy and futuristic, but also old fashioned and traditional. "Potsdam and the romantic Sanssouci Palace remind me of my Russian heritage. I also love medieval smaller towns  in Germany with their unique ambience and much slower pace. My latest discovery has been Bamberg - called by Bavarian locals "Little Venice".

Elena thinks the success of i‑contravel is built on "our multicultural team spirit". Our product managers develop a personal trust relationship with our customers in their native language and can easily identify all needs from start to finish.

"Spasibo and Thank You" - Elena looks forward working with you!
