Güldenstädt was born in Riga and studied medicine at the University of Frankfurt, obtaining his doctorate in 1767. In the following year he joined the expedition sent by Catherine II of Russia to explore the Russian empire. Güldenstädt travelled to the Caucasus and Astrakhan regions, returning to St Petersburg in March 1775.
