Travelling and exploring new countries is her passion. Lenka has been working as a tour guide for several travel agencies. She uses her knowledge and experience from many countries in the Islamic world to write texts for Czech media and to work on a number of educational projects.

She continued her education at Palacký University in Olomouc, where she received her PhD.

The two rivers were once the cradle of civilisation and still hold incredible sights today. Forgotten cities, ziggurats, houses made of reeds, white and black stone, monasteries, mosques and churches are just a fraction of what can be visited along Mesopotamia's two largest rivers. Travelling through the world of Turks, Kurds and Arabs will be narrated by Arabist and Iranianist Lenka Hrabalova.
