About me

Tea from the Culture Tourist in front of the Rijksmuseum

Hello and welcome to the Culture Tourist!

My name is Tea, and I am an Amsterdam based art historian and blogger…

…Art lover, travel enthusiast, coffee and fashion magazines addict.

And a founder of the Culture Tourist.

I love Art

I always loved creating things. When I was a kid, I always liked to design ‘magazines’ out of my old notebooks. I went to art high school, where I was especially interested in decorative crafts.

And then, during my studies, when I started to work as a museum guide, I realised how many people are intimidated by art. They find museums to be that strange place and how art is reserved only for the few who understands it.

But, art and design are all around us. And they are something that makes our life so much more beautiful.

Well, that’s something I love to reveal in the Culture Tourist.

I’m always looking for interesting public art, great museums and pretty buildings while travelling. And love to share them here with my readers.

I love to travel

I’m also in looove with travelling. It’s such a wonderful way to learn about the world around us. And especially about its history, art and culture.

That’s why my focus here is precisely that: deep travel, meaningful travel and especially cultural tourism.

Culture Tourist is a place where art and travel are combined together. And where you can learn about art and design through travel.

How I started Culture Tourist

Culture Tourist started as my creative outlet in 2016. But, it soon became my full-time job. And to me, that’s a dream come true.

After getting my MA degree in Art History, I moved from my home town Zagreb (Croatia) to Amsterdam. And found that to be a great opportunity to start my own business.

This blog is your travel guide through the art and culture of destinations around the world.

Who is Culture Tourist?

  • I am! I don’t like mass tourism. I believe in responsible tourism!
  • I love to travel deep. Meet local people, listen to their stories and let them tell me about their cities.
  • I also love to learn about culture, uniqueness and history of the destinations I’m visiting. But, I also love to immerse into the local everyday life. So I’m always on a lookout for some cool street art, local designers and artists.

I love connecting with my readers
