Hey, I'm Artem.

More than 6 years ago I took my backpack and moved to Germany.

At the beginning, I didn't understand how everything works: rented a room in a hotel for few days thinking that I'll find a flat meanwhile (nope), paid 20 euros for a 2-minutes ride with a taxi, lived at my friend's place on a mattress, paid fees everywhere and bought free magazines.

Barely survived but completed my master, changed few jobs, flats and the city. And now I would like to share my experience, help you to move to Frankfurt, avoid mistakes and get to the "enjoying apple wine on the riverside" step as soon as possible 👌

That's why together with the guys from How to Berlin I made How to Frankfurt. So that you can have a friend in Frankfurt who you can always ask, "How do I do that ...?"

Why can we help?
