Kasia

Gdańsk, Poland

Hi, my name is Kasia. I have more than eight years of guiding experience and I am really lucky because guiding is my work and passion at the same time.

Expanding my knowledge, meeting people from all over the world and sharing my love to the place is like amazing journey.

I was born, grew up and live in The City of Freedom. It was in Gdansk where in 1980, after 18 days of strike, Solidarity was established, which was the first blow of uncertainty for the communist regimes.

My home is a walking distance from the biggest Polish river Vistula. During the morning strolls, on one hand as a passionate photographer and person whose childhood was stunk in the atmosphere of port and shipyard, I take hundreds of pictures of the ships coming to Gdansk. On the other, I can watch seagulls flying over Westerplatte peninsula, a strip of land where on the 1st of September 1939 the Schleswig - Holstein's cannon - shots meant the outbreak of the hell on Earth that the WWII was.

My personality traits of Slavic woman, reliability, hospitality, sensitivity and open mindedness which stem from my family background, the heritage of Polish originating from the Lviv area (since 1945 in Ukraine), together with my artistic education at the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdansk, diversity of my work (I am a licensed tour guide, qualified teacher of English, cooperate with different cultural institutions in Gdansk) and my enthusiasm about the area are the factors making my guiding professional and colourful at the same time.

The ancient history of The World Capital of Amber that Gdansk is; the turning point in 1980 when the revolutionary movement was established; the vicinity of the summer resort The Pearl of Baltic Sea - Sopot; the sophisticated example of the 1920-ties and 30-ties modernism architecture city - Gdynia give you the chance to experience an unforgettable, unique visit. Watching the marvelous view from one of the view points and delicious meal in one of local restaurants can be the final touch.

If you want to familiarize not only with the landmarks of Tricity - Gdansk, Sopot, Gdynia, we can visit off the beaten path places or drive to outside the city destinations. I am a licensed tour guide in the Tricity and Pomeranian District (Voivoidship). The visit to Stutthoff Concentration Camp, Hel Peninsula, Kashuby, kayaking tours and many others can be the part of our meeting as well.

I use both public and private transport. My tours are flexible and I am happy to customize.

I am very much looking forward to meeting you.
