My name is Lyuba Poleva and I am a highly experienced and fully licensed* private tour guide. I have been showing international visitors the wonders of Prague for close to fifteen years, ever since the fall of the Communist Regime in 1989 when tourism in the Czech Republic began to take off. I am fluent in English, Russian, Czech, German and Hebrew and offer private and group tours in all these languages. I specialize in leading tours of the historical Jewish sights of Eastern and Central Europe. These sights include the Jewish Quarter of Prague, Theresienstadt, Kolin, and the old Ghetto towns of the Czech Republic (to name just a few). I also provide tours of the non-Jewish sections of Prague.
My education and prior work experience have provided me with the skills and knowledge necessary to give informative and interesting tours. I have a doctorate degree in the Philosophy of Judaism from Charles University, and have worked at the Jewish Museum in Prague both in the Archive Department and as a personal guide.
*In order to work as a tour guide in the Czech Republic one must qualify for a touring license by passing a series of examinations. My license grants my clients discounts on admissions to many of the Czech Republic’s sights and museums.
