I’m Ela, the founder of Cracow Free Tours. Being born in Cracow and living here all my life, I know secrets of this unique city and I’m never tired of sharing them with visitors. I will help you appreciate better the sights, sounds, and culture of Krakow. I love history and meeting new people, that’s why guiding is really my passion. I think having a great sense of humour is very important in life, so I try mixing history with lots of funny stories during my tours. I’m the Jagiellonian University graduate in English Philology, a licensed tour guide and, as I was born under the communism, you can ask me anything about that time. In my free time I enjoy travelling and exploring different cuisines of the world. There’s still so much to discover and that’s what I love most!
Hola, my name is Ola! I’m a law student at Jagiellonian University. I come from Kielce but I have fallen deeply in love with Krakow and that’s why I started working here. As a history lover there is nothing more precious than the people to whom you can tell all those stories. I have bunch of hobbies but the most important are films, puns, history and languages. My biggest dream is to travel all around the world and speak fluently at least 4 foreign languages (including Chinese!). I’m always in rush and I have inner urge to get to know some fun facts so one day I’ll be able to stop using Wikipedia. I could sum it up that I’m simply trying my best to be less boring than my studies ;)
Hello! My name is Hanna, I was born in the north of Poland but 6 years ago I moved to Cracow. I immediately fell in love with this beautiful city and decided to stay here. I am keen on history, but two biggest passions of my life are traveling and learning languages. That's why I love this job so much, as it connects it all. When I travel I always take the opportunity to do walking tours, so I know how it all looks like from your perspective. As a social psychology student of the Jagiellonian University, I am especially interested in the cross-cultural psychology. I always look for the opportunity to share intercultural experiences with others (but don't worry, I don't read anyone's mind! ;)) I will be happy to show you what our Polish culture is. I just love being a part of someone's travel adventure and sharing my knowledge about Cracow. I hope you will fall in love with this city as fast as I did!
Hola! Me llamo Hanna, nací en el norte de Polonia pero hace 6 años me mudé aquí a Cracovia. Me enamoré de esta ciudad, así que decidí vivir aquí para siempre... con solo una pequeña pausa, cuando pasé un año en Málaga aprendiendo español. Me interesa mucho la historia, pero las dos pasiones de mi vida son viajar y estudiar idiomas - ¡Entonces este es el trabajo perfecto para mí, ya que reúne todo! Siempre cuando viajo busco por un tour gratis, así pues sé cómo parece todo desde vuestro punto de vista. Como estudiante de psicología, me interesa especialmente la psicología intercultural. Siempre busco una oportunidad para compartir experiencias interculturales con los demás (pero no os preocupéis, no os voy a leer la mente! ;)) Me gusta mostrar a los demás lo que es la cultura polaca. Me encantaría ser parte de vuestro viaje a Cracovia. ¡Espero que os enamoreis de esta ciudad tan rápido como lo hice yo!
My name is Dominika. I am not originally from here, I come from the city in the Silesian district, near Cracow, but I've been living here for approximately 7 years now. I came to Cracow for my Uni studies, fell in love with this amazing city and decided to stay, I guess you can understand why!
On daily basis, besides working with Cracow Free Tours, I am doing my master's at the Jagiellonian University. I'm studying the cultures of the Middle East and learning Arabic!
I love meeting new people and sharing my knowledge about our lovely city, I am also very much interested in the Jewish heritage of Cracow, in the Jewish culture, the Middle Eastern cuisine, literature and music. Two other things I truly love are cooking and my big fluffy dog Alef (but not combined toghether! ;-))
Hi! My name is Natalia and although I was born in Warsaw, I now live here in Krakow. My father is from here, and my grandparents actually still own a farm south of the city that has been in our family for at least 100 years. My parents also met here in Krakow, when my father was in university working as a guide for foreign students, and my mom was a visiting student from America.
When I was nine-years-old, I was in Krakow for the summer visiting my grandparents, and decided it was my biggest dream to live here. Eventually, I did move to Krakow for what was supposed to be 11 months, and then I never really left! I still love Krakow as much today as I did that summer when I was nine, and I especially love the many legends about our city. When I’m not working as a tour guide you can find me sitting in one of Krakow’s many cafes or cycling along our cobbled streets.
Please, notice that our unique tours are run only by the guides with our RED UMBRELLA . Look for it in front of St. Mary’s church at the Main Market Square.
