Beata Petkiewicz

I have been a guide for 9 years. I belong to the Society of City Guides in Lublin PTTK and the Lublin Association of Pilots and Tourist Guides “Pogranicze”. I work as an academic teacher and translator.

Tours are available in Polish and French.

 

Contact with people of different ages, professions and from different parts of the world is what attracts me the most in being a guide. Also, I would like Lublin and the Lublin region to become recognizable both among the inhabitants of our country and guests from abroad.

People who contributed to the history of the city are the inspiration for my walks. Famous, but also nameless… they give it character, identity and build a unique atmosphere.

Polish, French

Tours

During this walk, you will have the opportunity to follow the chronology of plague, smallpox, cholera, typhus, syphilis, tuberculosis, and flu epidemics. You will get to know where they came from and what was their specificity. The guide will tell you what then residents thought about the causes of the epidemics, as well as how they defended against them. The scenario of the walk includes the stories about doctors and social activists who fought against these dangerous diseases and tried to improve the living conditions of the inhabitants by popularising hygiene or creating hospitals and shelters.
This walk is the second part of a series of 3 walking tours that follow the route of Lublin's monuments. Participants will get to know the circumstances of their creation and the interesting facts related to them. They will learn more about their creators and initiators. Perhaps, they will create a new monument committee...
This walk is the third part of a series of 3 walking tours that follow the route of Lublin's monuments. However, even those who decide to walk all three routes will not see all Lublin monuments. There are about 90 of them. They commemorate events and characters, but they also have their own stories and knotty fates.
This is an attempt to present the profiles of Lublin doctors, not only those well-known to the medical community, but also those who contributed to the history of the city and its development, as well as the history of hospitals, starting from the old centuries. By the way, we will visit well-known and unknown monuments and buildings, which we will see from the other side and we will discover their former purpose and functions.
During this walk, you will visit most of Lublin's tourist attractions. The guide will adapt the walking tour to your needs! For those willing, a bonus - visiting a "surprise place"!
This walk is the first part of a series of 3 walking tours that follow the route of Lublin’s monuments. Participants will get to know the places from which the monuments have disappeared or have been moved. They will also discover completely new monuments that have just been created. They will learn the circumstances of their creation and the interesting facts related to them.
