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 who is definitely in love with Prague. I cannot imagine to live in a different city that I would call “home."

Though I am originally from Slovakia, I feel Czech the same way as Slovakian. Actually, when I was born, there was still one country called Czechoslovakia! It is funny but would you believe that I lived in four different countries and moved only once? That’s because of all 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)
