About the Author
Journalist, photographer, and freelance writer Mark Baker has had a deep interest in Central Europe since receiving a degree in International Affairs at Columbia University in the 1980s. He currently lives in Prague, Czech Republic, but is a frequent visitor to, and a big fan of, Poland. In addition to writing guide books, he is a contributor to The Wall Street Journal Europe and National Geographic Traveler, among other publications.
Kit F. Chung is a Malaysian-born freelance writer who has been based in Warsaw since 2001. Poland is her first encounter with a former “Iron Curtain” country. Decoding her adopted home has been made fun and easy by Poles who tolerate her incessant inquisitive questions on anything and everything Polish. Kit contributes regularly to local and international publications on all things Polish, covering food and travel (naturally) as well as people, culture, art and designs.
