I love my motherland, its history and nature. That’s why I help the visitors to discover, how beautiful The Czech Republic is. During my studies at the university in Germany, I became an expert in history, arts and culture. Since 2004 I work in the tourist industry and my professional tourist guide experience started at 2010. There is secret history hidden in the heart of Europe - in the Czech Republic. But you can’t read about it in official books. My mission is to tell and to show you the real story of it.

Tour description

Our tour will start in the old Slavic guarding place – in the town Straz nad Nezarkou (Guard above the river Nezarka), in the south Bohemia, near to the border with Austria.

The sacred duty of the residents was to protect the land border in the heart of Europe. In the 13th century, the king entrusted the powerful knights with a rose on their coat of arms, with a guarding duty. They built a castle and their house ruled the whole south Bohemia. The lords of Straz boasted the blue rose, and you will save that rose in your heart for ever.

We will see the castle, the church, the mysterious obelisk and many other old-fashioned buildings. You will also hear the story about the underground tunnels in town, one of them connects the castle with the crypt under the church. The knights of the blue rose are buried there.
