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!

Fantastic tour! Barbara met us at the hotel at the agreed time and then spent the next 4 hours providing a very knowledgeable and interesting guide to the Jewish Quarter before returning us to the hotel. I can thoroughly recommend her as a guide.
