Who am I?
My name is Sona Prochazkova, which, when translated, means Sonya Walker.
It absolutely suits me. I love history and walking
I was born and raised in Prague in the communist Czechoslovakia. After the Velvet Revolution in 1989, I also lived in Berlin and in London for a couple of years.
Becoming a tour guide, I fulfilled my childhood dream. As a child I always followed the guides, carefully listening to their explanations. It was then that I decided to become an archaeologist. However, during the communist era, it was very hard to study archaeology because the department was open just every second year and only 3 people from the whole Czechoslovakia were admitted to the studies, so I instead studied and finished Economics. After several years of working, the dream called me again and I found my dream job – guiding.
I love history, it’s details, hidden stories, finding out everything that happened in the past has such a huge impact today. That is what attracts me to history.
I look forward to meeting you.
