About me in English

Dzień dobry! Hello!

My name is Agnieszka, I am a Varsovian born and bread. I am not only a proud resident of Warsaw (Poland) but I turned a genuine pride and passion for my home city into a profession. I full time guide, interpreter and a temporary academic lecturer. 

I have graduated from Warsaw University with a degree in history and Italian philology.  Then, I studied Polish – Jewish relations at the Polish Academy of Science. My home away from home is in Venice as I was given a scholarship at Ca Foscari Univeristy and I have lived there for a year. As far as guiding and tourism, I am a professional trainer certified by the World Federation of Tourist Guide Association. 

In my professional life I combine my academic background with wide-ranging interests comprising history, modern art and classical music. I have a temporary teaching position at the University of Warsaw and the College of Communication, Political Science and International Relations (also in Warsaw). I have lectures on the methodology of historical research and tourism. I have been a regular collaborator since 2015.

I have been working as a guide and a tour leader since 2001 and I have an extensive experience in collaborating with tour agencies and state and local administration institutions such as Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Warsaw Tourist Office. During numerous study tours I have been in charge of interpreting, scheduling and providing visitors with a general overview of contemporary Poland as much as acquainting them with Polish art, history and culinary traditions.

All in all, if you think of visiting Warsaw, I am the right person to ask about Frederick Chopin, Witold Lutosławski and Władysław Szpilman or to have a walk following the traces of WWII. I am a big foody… and, currently, I am working on culinary history of major Polish towns and cities for Makro Cash and Carry Polska. Of course, I began with Warsaw

Well, check my Facebook fun page or Instagram and you will discover what I am up to at the moment or go to the Warsaw local guide section. And I have an English language blog called: Tailored tours in Poland.
