I have been a tour guide to Český Krumlov for more than 20 years. I love arts, history and outdoors. My clients tell me that I am a passionate storyteller who brings history alive . I was born shortly after the Russian invasion, grew up in the communist times and fought for freedom during Velvet Revolution. I am University graduate from the Czech Republic and the UK. I am an enthusiastic tour guide as well as mother of 3 children. My job is my hobby and keeps me happy and healthy.
