My partner and I were fortunate to spend an afternoon with Kristian, the owner of Prague Local Friends, last weekend and remain in awe at the enthusiasm and encyclopedic knowledge that he has for his city.
What was only scheduled as a couple of hours walking around the Old Town soon turned into nearly four hours of great company and storytelling. (We booked Kristian for two hours but spent double that time with him, without a moment wasted.)
While weaving in and out of secret parts of Prague we were not aware existed (despite pounding the streets of the very same district earlier in the day), Kristian adeptly explained the intricate history and topography of the streets and buildings with the commanding clairvoyance of someone who has truly experienced a city with his eyes wide open. And has no hesitation in sharing his boundless insight.
A particular highlight was hearing about his passion for Czech Cubism (make sure to ask!).More
