About Me


Know myself :-) and search for the meaning of life.


I am an introvert and proud of it, but I don't mind hosting or meeting people.


Hard to say. It keeps changing. Life is maybe more than just for fun....

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have been hosting friends for many years(outside CS) and I would like to offer similar hosting to other people in my rented flat. Also to be able to travel somewhere myself.


None though this site, but have hosted friends and friends of friends for many years.


Films and film festivals
Psychanalysis and exploring the world through exploring of myself and others.
Co-housing and community style of living - but I do not live in any community at the moment.
Current affairs, progressive politics, sociology, history
Arts and Philosophy as a way of interacting with the world.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Basic hospitality of vegan flat, showing or pointing out interesting places in Prague or around.
I am not going to present you usual Prague turist sighseeings, I find the city centre too much crowded with turists. I am still trying to find an aswers to what is turism all about, and how to do it so that it does not ruin the magic of the places.
I could shows you some interesting parks in Prague, some of which has nice views over the city.
I can help you find your way around if you are after something that you already want to visit.
I try to balance living in the city with the need to spend time in outside in surrounding hills and forests. If I would have time I can take you on a short one day hike around the Prague.
