20 Intriguing People


For this special issue of The Crock magazine, we sought out people who make Prague such an interesting place to live and work.

Artists, businessmen, journalists, an athlete, technician, judge, even a self-proclaimed professional human being - they're all part of the fascinating mosaic here. Plus, we've included portraits of colorful characters further afield, from Malta to Bratislava.

We hope you enjoy meeting them as much as we did.
