What is your profession?

I do taxes for a big international company. I studied taxes in school and I like what I do.

How did you start working with OHP?

I first came across the festival through my friends as a visitor and because I had been occasionaly involved in events for children, the opportunity to be involved in the festival as part of tours for children caught my interest, and I became a regular volunteer.

How long have you been working with Open House Prague?

For a few years now, four I think. I work as a volunteer during the festival and also throughout the year as a tour guide for children. I like attending the festival as well as the events in the accompanying program as a visitor. I like the contrast to my job and the entire concept, where I connect people (children) with architecture. I never know what it’s going to be like, which is what I like about it the most.

How long have you been working with Open House Prague?

My favorite style is cubism. However, what makes Prague so fun is the endless discovering and diversity, which keeps on growing because modern elements are being added. I really like this contrast. I love city parks as well as villas and villa neighborhoods, which is why I like the peaceful district of Podolí.

What are your hobbies?

Sports. All kinds of sports. And the more the sport resembles a game, the more I like it.

Throughout the year, we send our newsletter about the festival and other events in english.
