Anna Wawrzyniak

She was born on the “wrong side of the Vistula river” in the infamous district of Grochów. After living in several other districts of Warsaw and other cities outside Poland she decided that there’s no place like home so she finally settled down and started a family a few bus stops away from where she was born. Five years ago she decided to change her promising (sort of) corporate career into something more rewarding  and she became a tour guide. She also works as a translator/interpreter but still manages to create time for her passion which is the Russian language (by the way, she’s studied 10 foreign languages – unsuccessfully in most cases).

  • Beata is a class apart. She took a disparate group of many nationalities and turned us into a single entity; all in search of her knowledge. The tour lasts a couple of hours, goes in a flash and covers parts of the Old Town which you would never find on your own. If you visit this city, here is where you start.

  • Brilliant Beata! Saw this trip on this website and thought we would give it a go as it's technically free! Beata was brilliant full of information and able to answer all questions that were asked! The emotional side of how 85% of the city was demolished and rebuilt made you realise there was a heart to this city! Such a good trip it's deserved every Zloty that we gave her at the end of this 2.5 hour informative and humourous tour!

  • Absolutely first class. Myself and my wife joined the free walking tour with Beata and it was absolutely first rate - Beata was knowledgeable, approachable and really opened our eyes to the Old Town.
