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!
