About me:

Hello, I’m Dana, a Prague local. I was born and raised here. I’m the founder of/guide for Prague Behind the Scenes, a small local business designed for anyone who wants to experience Prague beyond the tourist bubble.

Prague Behind the Scenes is just me, an independent individual who simply shows visitors around in a respectful way (no big groups, no microphones, no crowded touristy routes).

My tours cover most of Prague’s main sights and take you to less-visited places, too. A great way to see more than the tourist ghetto, which is full of people, cheesy souvenirs, overpriced services and other traps.

I never call my clients tourists, because with me they’re not!

I’ve been a fully certified Prague guide since 2010. Read more

My passions are:

  • Blues
  • Yoga
  • Walking
  • Relaxing
  • Nature
  • Writing
  • Skiing
  • Music
  • Gardening
  • Rock Music
  • Reading
  • Beer
  • Arts
  • Animals
  • Blogging
  • Tourism
  • Art History
  • Listening to music
  • Snorkeling
  • Travelling

In my city I have great tips for:

  • Historical sights
  • Hidden gems
  • Cafés & coffee shops
  • Art & architecture
  • Shops & markets

I have travelled to: I’ve lived in Norway and Canada, travelled to the US, Thailand and Vietnam, and around almost all of Europe.

My idea of a great trip is: To not plan too much, to meet locals, to avoid touristy places and activities, and to write in my travel diary every day. To take photos during my travels, to sort them at home, and not forget to print them. Hardly anyone does that nowadays…

I love my city because: I was born and raised in Prague, the prettiest city in the world. No need to be humble :)

Excellent Guide, Excellent Tour
for Dana
Dana is awesome! She is passionate about her hometown and conveys it beautifully through her command of the English language. She is VERY knowledgeable about Prague and the Czech Republic. My spouse and I wanted a 100% custom tour. Our ideas about what to see matched hers, although she tactfully indicated we could not do it all in 4 hours. She put together an itinerary that perfectly fit our time and tastes. She was punctual and then led us at our age-70s pace. She gave us wonderful advice (before and during) on local transport, where to enjoy meals, a concert, and shopping. She actually gave us extra time and would only take a cold beverage as payment. It was truly an exceptional experience, one we did not want to end. Not only was hiring Dana the best decision made on this trip, we made a new friend too. We HIGHLY recommend her!
