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 blogger (soon moving to Canada), art lover, travel enthusiast, coffee and fashion magazines addict. And a founder of the Culture Tourist.

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 people are so intimidated by art. They find museums to be that strange place and that art is reserved only for a few that ‘understands it’.

But, let’s be honest 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 also in looove with travelling. I believe that travelling is a wonderful way to learn about the world around us. And especially about its history, art and culture. So, that’s why my focus here is precisely that. Deep travel, meaningful travel and especially cultural tourism.

Well, that’s why I decided to create a Culture Tourist as a place where art and travel are combined together. And where you can learn about art and design through travel. So, something that started as my creative outlet in 2016 became my full-time job very soon. 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 art and culture of destinations around the world.


Who is the Culture Tourist?

  • I am! I don’t like mass tourism. I believe in responsible tourism!
  • I love to travel deep. Meet some local people, listen to their stories and let them tell me about their cities.
  • I love to travel around Europe and learn about its culture, differences and history. 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.

What am I doing…

Culture Tourist is all about promoting that art and travel inspired lifestyle. This is how I’m doing that:

#1 – Creating travel related content: Culture Tourist is focused on history, art and culture of destinations around the world. You can find travel guides, lists of best museums or typical local products to buy there.

#2 – Museum tours: I’m also organising private museum tours in some museums in Amsterdam (Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum and Rembrandthuis Museum). Check the links for more info.

#3 – Travel related art products: Educating people about art and history is one of my goals. That’s why I’m creating these travel related art products, as well. You can see a collection of my colouring postcards in my WEB SHOP.
