A new resident of Prague, I have been teaching drama and acting professionally in the USA and the UK for as far back as I can remember. I hold a special place in my heart for medieval and Renaissance History, and performed as a cast member of the Maryland Renaissance Festival in the USA for sixteen years. It was there that I honed my improvisation and storytelling skills. I look forward to guiding our guests through the fascinating history and dark legends of this most magical city.

For as long as I can remember I have been fascinated by stories of centuries past and legends. That lead me to become a profesional historian and a performer. For almost ten years I have been trying to bring the past closer to people of this day through performances of living history, storytelling, theatre, dancing and writing. The art and history one can encounter in the web of old and tiny streets of Prague has enchanted me and made me its resident. My creativity sees this city as a well of endless inspiration. I love to walk in footsteps of people from long ago, touch the walls and objects they touched and tell the stories of their lifes and sometimes their afterlife. I can't wait to take you on an evening walk through the wonderful city of Prague and share with you the stories that have deeply touched me.
Since my childhood I have always loved art. I think it is something beautiful, extraordinary, mysterious and full of power. In every performance there is magic. And when you combine dark legends with historical Prague – it creates the right atmosphere for your imagination. I am an actress and I studied acting here in Prague. Now I educate myself at international acting masterclasses – I was at Bernard Hiller's Acting Masterclass in Los Angeles, Berlin, Bucharest and Madrid.

I was born in Budapest, growing up here I didn’t fully realize what a beatiful and misterious city I live in. That has changed. I have completed my university studies from history and I always loved to provide an experience to other people with historical facts and legends. I am here to deconstruct the common notion that history is merely a boring collection of dates and events noone wants to remember. Budapest hides a lot of mystery and interesting stories under its layers. Allow me to take you back, in time to a dark and frightening period of this country’s history while allowing ourselves to immerse into the beauty of the medieval cobbled streets of the Buda Castle district.
