I am licensed tour guide in Krakow. I took one year course to become tour guide. I know secrets of this unique city. I love sharing my knowledge about our lovely city, I am also very much interested in the Jewish heritage of Krakow. I will help you experience better the sights, sounds, and culture of Krakow. I love history and meeting new people, that's why guiding is really my passion. I think having a great sense of humour is very important in life, so I try mixing history with lots of funny stories during my tours.
