What you'll do

We would love to tell you about our country and the culture of the Polish people. Thanks to our lecture, you will discover how it was to live in communist Poland, how to speak some Polish words and what to do to prepare yourself to visit our country. We will explain to you our culture and all the strange traditions we have like watering ourselves to invite spring or leaving the last drop of vodka to have luck and some​ help of dwarfs who are living with us if we are good enough to deserve them.
Other things to note
If you have any specific interests or questions about Polish culture, please let me know in advance. I would do my best to answer.

Monika is so friendly and easy to talk to! She shared so much wonderful information, and she is very upbeat and positive. We wanted to know something about Christmas, and she told us about so many wonderful traditions. She made sure everything was appropriate and interesting for my 10 year old, too. I've always wanted to visit Poland, and now I do even more!

A great way to spend an hour. I have travelled to Poland many times and was missing being there so booked this experience to make up for it. I wasn't disappointed. Monika brought the culture and some quirky traditions to life, many of which I didn't know of. Hope to be in Poland one day soon and go on a real tour with Monika.

What a fun way to spend an hour. Monika was just wonderful and I loved hearing some of her personal stories as well as finding out more about Polish customs. I look forward to one day visiting Poland.

A great way to spend an otherwise unremarkable weeknight. You'll want to visit Krakow in person after this program! Since that's not possible due to Covid-19, I ordered some kapcie as a souvenir of this experience.

This was a wonderful experience. My family and I learned a lot about Poland and Monika made it personal which was great. We had a private group which was nice so we could ask questions and relate her teachings to our own heritage.
