My name is Filip Huta, and since September 2010 I’ve been a tourist guide in and around the beautiful city of Prague.
I was born in 1989, the same year that had seen the fall of the Berlin Wall, the Exxon Valdez oil spill and the premiere of The Simpsons. It was a big year for Czechoslovakia as well, with the end of 41 years of communist rule and the Velvet Revolution.
I studied Journalism at the Charles University, but it wasn’t the right fit for me. Around the same time a friend introduced me to the tourism industry. I combined my long affection of the English language with my even longer fascination with history and storytelling, and eight years later I haven’t looked back.
Over the eight years, I’ve met more than 30,000 people from all over the world. I’ve told stories that spanned more than a thousand years of history. And with this blog I’m hoping that I might share some of the incredible stories with you, whether we’ve met on a tour or not!
You can expect a weekly article about something I find genuinely interesting. That doesn’t narrow it down very much, I know, so to give you an idea what it might be, here’s a list of possible categories.
This list is by no means exhaustive, so my suggestion is to keep checking back and hopefully you’ll find something good to read every week!
