This is your city guide
Antoni has been a licensed city guide since 2013 and founder of this tourism portal. He was born in Poland in 1984 and grew up in Germany. He speaks English fluently.
He has been living and working in Warsaw since 2012, after completing his law studies at the University of Bielefeld. As becoming a lawyer was very difficult across countries, he turned his attention to the tourism industry. In 2017, he finally founded Walking Poland Group – Walking Warsaw. His dream came true!
Antoni says about himself that his Polish heart pumps blood into the German brain. His Polish and German perspectives mix and complement each other to form a whole picture full of interesting conclusions, which he is happy to pass on to his guests.
On his city tours, he enjoys talking to tourists and is very grateful for every unexpected question.

All of this is reconstructed.
In the New Town is located the birthplace of Marie Curie. The end of the tour is at the Monument of the Warsaw Uprising.
Take the opportunity to ask the guide about insider tips. He is more than happy to help.
