About me

Hi! I am Jana, the Prague Tour Guide.

I am licensed guide of Prague, the Czech Republic and the Jewish Town. I am also a studied archaeologist and history lover and I'm definitely in love with Prague.

Though I am originally from Slovakia, I feel Czech the same way as Slovakian. I cannot imagine to live in a different city that I would call "home". Actually, when I was born, there was still one country called Czechoslovakia! Would you believe that I have lived in four different countries and moved physically only once? That’s because of the political changes in the last decades. Let me explain it to you in person on the tour :-)

I am guiding since 2010 and would love to show all the beauties of my Prague hometown.

Apart of guiding, I love reading, traveling all over the world, hiking in the nature, eating, drinking and sleeping :-)

Nashledanou! (Good bye in Czech)
