Host on Airbnb since 2013
  • Identity verified
Hi my name is Lenka, I'm Czech, an artist and a yoga teacher. I studied art school with a focus on graphic design which I did for many years professionally.

I am also a professional tourist guide and I guide tourist groups for sightseeing and excursions in the Czech Republic. The Czech Republic has traditional crafts that I would like to introduce to the tourists.

The special tradition of Bohemia Crystal is absolutely unique in the world and these products go to the whole world. Therefore, I would like to introduce you to this beautiful tradition from beginning of production to the final product.

Nothing like this can be seen around the world of glass making, and that's why this trip is designed for all the craft and art lovers and for the people who love little walk in the nature.

Come and enjoy!
