Mariana Fisher


While growing up in Prague, Mariana spent many summers on Croatia’s Istrian Peninsula, which to this day is her favorite destination in Eastern Europe—in equal parts for its beautiful scenery and its fantastic food (she likens the Croatia of today to Italy 20 years ago). Mariana has spent nearly a decade designing trips to the region, working with small farmers, local artisans, and museum curators to create authentic experiences that are far from the tourist traps. She speaks Czech, English, French, Spanish, and Hebrew, and understands Croatian and Russian as well—so she can teach you how to pronounce Plitvice and Rovinj like a local. Mariana is also an expert in Eastern European Jewish history; she has master’s degrees in Hebrew and in Spanish Philology and Literature.
