Why Us?

Our Association was established in 2008. All our members are certified and licensed guides in Krakow, for whom guiding is both a profession and passion in one. For many years now we have been sharing with tourists the history and culture of our city. We guide you in the footsteps of great figures who either spent their lives here or were just visitors – but always left a lasting mark, and did not forget their stay in Krakow.

We wish everyone who comes to the city could subscribe to the words of Henryk Sienkiewicz, a famous Polish writer and Nobel Prize winner:

“…I am more and more convinced that if the Kościuszko Mound emitted a bit of smoke, and the Błonia meadow exhibited more water than Rudawa, then Naples would be no match for Kraków, a city with exquisite living conditions. The inhabitants of such a city should not die, and if they are to die, then I believe that it would be due partially to their love for old traditions, and partially to copying what is fashionable abroad…”

(all quotes after M. Rożek “The Greats under Wawel” 2013)
