Łukasz Godlewski – A Personal Warsaw Guide

My name is Łukasz Godlewski, and I am a licensed guide in Warsaw. I’m a Varsovian of several generations. My great-grandparents were married on Grzybowski Square in the All Saints Church, my great grandfather was a photographer on Mazowiecka Street in Kodak, and after the war his studio was in a converted tramcar which is now Dmowskiego Roundabout and the center of Warsaw.

I graduated from Psychology of Intercultural Relations at the SWPS University of Social Sciences and Humanities. I am the author and curator of the website Klimatwarszawy.pl. My passion is photographing Warsaw. The future of Warsaw’s monuments and architectural treasures is very important to me, as I try to catalog and share on my website, as I anxiously watch other pre-war buildings slowly disappear, from a city crippled by war and oppression.

identyfikatorIn 2013 I completed my course to become a Warsaw City Guide at PTTK, the oldest Polish guiding organization which has been training guides dating back to 1946. I lead tours through the city’s biggest attractions such as Warsaw’s Old Town and Royal Route, but I am also happy to share with you some of Warsaw’s mysterious and less well traveled areas such as Praga, Ochota, Mokotów or Żoliborz, where many of the houses and buildings survived the Second World War.
