About Us

We are an English-speaking international community based in Prague, the beautiful capital of the Czech Republic. We connect locals, expats and visitors by organizing sporting and cultural events, as well as regular hiking tours. Our motto is “There are no strangers, only friends we haven’t yet met.”

Join us and discover unique places and people!

OUR MISSION  is to help expats and locals get to know each other, be active and healthy and learn together about the history and culture of the Czech Republic.




  • Discovering – learning about the world we are lucky to experience for the brief period of time called “Life”.
  • Growth – growing as people, shattering glass ceilings, overcoming the false beliefs of “I can not do that”.
  • Community – because we can only live a happy life when we feel connected with other human beings.




We are one of the largest and most diverse international community in the Czech Republic (We have over 5000 members in our and facebook groups combined, of more than 60 nationalities). This gives you the opportunity to meet and interact with many interesting people from all walks of life. We have plenty of experience – we have already organized more than 200 events. Our events are thoroughly planned and we are always discovering new places to visit and activities to try. Our goal is not just to have fun socializing and being active, but also to learn more about the history and culture of the Czech Republic.

Thanks to our diverse activities, there is something for everyone. You are welcome to suggest and co-organize new activities as well! Last but not least, you should join us because of the friendly and relaxed atmosphere of our events.



My name is Filip and I was born and grew up in the beautiful city of Prague. I invite you to join an exciting journey during which we will be discovering together what Prague and the Czech Republic have to offer.


How did I become the event organizer and why?


In 2013, while living and working in London, I had accidentally come across an amazing website – This website provides a platform for people to meet offline around their shared interests. I eventually started “Epping Forest Cycling Group” and loved organizing weekend bike rides for it. Around that same time I started looking for a new career because my pharmacy job had been growing increasingly unfulfilling. When I finally quit the job and moved back to Prague, I did lots of soul-searching to find out what my life is about. For the time being, I joined a few meetups in Prague, and Discovering Prague was one of them. I liked the group and when Michaela, its founder, stepped down from the organizer role, I decided to replace her. That was in April 2015.

Meanwhile, I “dove off the deep end”- I had fully dedicated myself to pursuing my main life goal – to get up every day looking forward to going to work! I first worked as a tour guide for a fabulous startup tour company called Northern Hikes (do check them out!) and in spring 2016 started my own travel business – Prague Day Trips (definitely check it out!).

During 2015, and – even more in 2016, Discovering Prague became my job number one. I’ve found that I really love to take people around my hometown and my home country, sharing with them its nature and history. We are lucky to live in one of the best places in the world, let’s make the most of it!

Live your life to the fullest, be fearless, and learn something new every day!

P.S. You will find additional information about Discovering Prague on our FAQ page or contact me directly! I am looking forward to answering your queries!



Shortly after the fall of the iron curtain I moved from Hamburg, where I grew up, to Prague. The town still catches me with her magic. But a big part of my life in this country are my contacts to people from other countries.

Through the sales of medical instruments I got in touch with details of human beings, what  provoked my interest in the function of our brain. How does it work? What makes us go? What makes us happy?

Today for me there is nothing more rewarding than a decent talk with another person. This is the time when I learn and when I grow. And on hikes it works even better. Physical activity opens our mind. Walk and talk is magic. Do not hesitate to follow me on this journey, it is awesome.
