Krakow, MALOPOLSKA, Poland

Krakow is magic, it is my home town and my place on Earth.

For more than 15 years now I've been extremely lucky to be a local city guide and introduce this hidden gem to visitors from all over the world.

I have graduated local Jagiellonian University in Russian Literature and - as Minor - in Law and Administration. I used to work for Diplomatic Protocol Unit of Malopolska Governor and for the largest British charity organisation - The British Council, delivering top class guiding services for VIP delegations, scholars and business clients.

I am deeply interested in culture and history of Polish Jews and modern history of Israel. I specialise in Jewish traces tours and co-operate with March of The Living and Cracow's Jewish Festival.

I often help and assist tourists with Polish backgrounds to find information about their relatives and reconstruct their family tree.

Except guiding, I work as a tour leader and as a translator in English/Polish for business clients.

I hope to guide you here and let you fall in love with Krakow!

A Recent Review of this guide

We had the tour with 10 girls. Barbara showed us a lot of hidden spots and fun facts. It was very divers and we really enjoyed it! She spoke English very well and could answer any question we asked. We would recommend the tour to everybody!
