Freelance Journalist & Travel Writer

About Mark Baker

I am a freelance journalist & travel writer, based in Prague

I've been in the Czech Republic off and on since about 1991, though for a few years during that time, I lived in New York. Before moving to Prague, I lived for five years in Vienna.

Written for publishers such as Lonely Planet, Frommer’s and Fodor’s

I'm mainly a guidebook author, though I try to mix it up by writing for travel magazines and newspapers. My articles have appeared in publications like National Geographic Traveler, BBC World News, the Wall Street Journal, and Wanderlust, among others.

Previously worked as a correspondent for The Economist and Bloomberg

Before starting my career in travel writing, I had more than two decades of 9am-5pm jobs, writing and editing for The Economist Group, Bloomberg News, The Prague Post and Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty.
