Hello, everyone enjoying watching other people’s lives! I’m Alina, I’m 20 years old. I was born in Polotsk, Belarus, but I’ve been living in Prague for a few years. I came here to study but I changed my mind and became a tour guide. I enjoy my job very much!
Welcome to my day!
My day starts at 8. By the way, after I moved to Prague, I started seeing colorful dreams and it makes it even more difficult for me to wake up in the morning.
My friend advised me to read something to wake up faster. So far it’s been helpful.
I turned on my favorite music and started fixing my face making dance movements (you can’t see it in the photo).
What time was it?
That’s my friend Nata. We share this apartment. Her boyfriend is 2.10 m tall!
She’s my culinary god! I’d starve to death if it were not for her!
There are a few more people living in this apartment so we had to make up some rules to make it easier to co-exist.
Meet Charlie. We took him from a dog’s shelter. He’s the cutest dog I’ve ever seen in my entire life! There are no stray dogs in Prague, they are all sent to dog shelters.
I don’t like eating in the morning.
I had to say good-bye to my bed.
It was -15C so I put on my warm closes.
I waked up Charlie. He’s 12 years old but he’s full of energy!
I love walking him on the ice!
I live not very far from downtown.
“We help tourists who suffered from Lanta-Tour”. The travel agency I work for helps tourists who get into trouble.
Our office manager. He gave me a list with names of tourists I was going to accompany. It was to be an individual tour which I like most of all.
We started with Wenceslas Square.
In the subway.
We took off from the station called Museum and headed to the old part of the city.
They say if a bomb explodes inside this trash can, noone will be hurt.
This monastery is famous for its proprietary beer and monks.
My tourists were excited to taste the beer because the monastery is the only place where they serve it.
Once a day monks come here to have a beer. Nice job!
I know Prague well but every day I can’t stop admiring it and fall in love with it more and more.
I also love stuffed animals and have my own collection.
This is a monument to Edvard Beneš, a leader of the Czechoslovak independence movement, Minister of Foreign Affairs and the second President of Czechoslovakia. The monument is situated by Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
They say Miloš Forman, a Czech-American director and screenwriter, shot a movie here long ago.
It’s the first time I see a stray cat here in Prague! I wish I could take it home but we have Charlie.
It was five minutes to twelve and we wanted to catch another changing of the Guard.
Saint Vitus’ Cathedral had been under construction for almost 600 years! Its architect was just 23 when he began the work. This place is worth seeing, trust me!
This statue is situated near the museum of toys which was formely used as the house of pioneers. The opening ceremony was followed by a shameful closing ceremony because they had to remove… you know… Later they put it back where it belonged.
Another controversial sculpture in Prague.
Don’t believe people saying it is Paris which is the most romantic city on earth! It is Prague!
The Carles Bridge is believed to be a mystical place because they laid a cornerstone of this bridge in 1357 on the 9th of July at 5.31 a.m. which makes it 135797531. People believed it would protect the city from misfortune. Nowadays hundreds or thousands of tourists visit the bridge every day.
Each year, ingenious sellers invent new souvenirs relating to Prague. What can these clocks have to do with Prague? You just don’t know about old photos of the city coming with the clock as a bonus (to put it inside the clock).
This blind musician is well-known in Prague. He was shown on TV a couple of times. He used to have a shepherd which unfortunately died and now he has to perform alone.
If you touch this thing and make a wish…
It will come true!
The majority of people associate Prague with this astrological clock.
I had to say good-bye to my tourists. They looked satisfied.
So, I could go have a bite and skate.
It was my third time that I skated. I was a little nervous.
You know Natasha (it is her who made me skate for the first time) and the other one is Marina. She studies at Charles University in Prague and loves dancing. She’s a great girl.
It was so much fun!
After that, we headed to a grocery store. The food they sell there is good but I prefer buying food at the farmer’s market once a week.
On the way home we saw a teddy bear with no paw. It’s so sad when people get rid of things because they get broken… We took it home.
I wanted to show you that I’m a girl with good housekeeping skills so I decided to make pasta with seafood. Unfortunatelly, I was so hungry that I had eaten my dinner BEFORE I thought about photographing it.
I missed my bed and pillows so much!
Every new day of my life is a discovery and adventure for me. I like moving forward because that’s what life is. Prague is my good friend and we help each other get a little better day by day. If you visit Prague, I promise you will fall in love with it and it doesn’t matter if you stay here or not. Those memories of Prague will remain in your heart forever…
What are you waiting for? Make photos of your day and send them in!
