What you'll do

No boring old-fashioned history tour with a retired teacher but a walk through medieval Kraków with a passionate storyteller!

We will show you the beauty of former capital of Poland filled with medieval architecture, beautiful palaces and gorgeous churches. Deep yourself in the culture of Polish people, get to know Poles who greatly contributed to the way our world looks today.

Learn what is the most famous window in Poland, for whom the Zigmunt Bell at the Wawel castle (~11000kg) rings, see the living symbol of Krakow – the trumpeter who plays his melody every hour from the St. Mary’s church. Learn why Krakow was lucky to preserve its beauty in the days of WW2 and was not devastated by the German Nazis.

During the 2.5-hour tour you will see the best of the city and what is even more important, we will unveil you the most glorious but also tragic chapters of Polish history.

I came to Kraków as a lawyer and ended up as a guide. It says a lot. Krakow got me, so I want to share my passion and love to this city with others.
I wasn't born in Kraków and I believe that this is my advantage, because I know what tourists are looking for, so I can give it to them.
Despite the fact that it's not obligatory to have a guide's license I decided to take a deep course of Polish history in order to be able to deliver people authentic and top quality information. Of course, entertaining and funny way.
As the result of being the guide for 5 years I've got thousands of excellent reviews and have met nice people from all over the world.
So, I'll be glad to meet you too.
