My name is Svyatoslav Biryulin, I was born in Saint-Petersburg (at that time - Leningrad) in Russia. For many years I lived and worked in Moscow, Russia, and before 2012 I had not thought about moving to anywhere else. I used to be a successful CEO, than - a successful business consulting, and believed that my life was perfectly ok. But then we (me and my wife) decided that we would like to spend the rest of our lives in a more quiet place. We also thought that living in Europe brings way more opportunities for our kids. But we didn't wanted to move in an absolutely different place and decided to live in Eastern Europe. Soon our choice fell on Slovenia - small, quiet, peaceful and very clean country. As soon as we visited Slovenia for the first time, we fell in love with the country, and now we are very happy to live here. We are learning Slovene and establish our businesses here. I have to travel to Russia and other former USSR countries for the business purposes rather soon, but my home in Ljubljana, and my heart belongs to Slovenia.
