    Very good and interesting explanations from Bozenna Juda, the guide who made me discover the heights of the Palace of Culture and Science as well as the space of the former Warsaw ghetto. I was all alone during my visit and had to take an important phone call related to the covid and she was perfectly flexible and understandable about that and I thank her very much. I felt more like being with a family friend than with a guide. I highly recommend this guide who has been in the business from a young age.
