Although appreciating local food is very important, it is not enough to be a perfect traveler.

How it all began?

“Where there is a will, there is a way.” It all began during a trip from Rafal, the founder of Fiszkoteka, to study in Berlin. He had only one month to prepare for the German exam and time was scarce to study everything. So he had an idea.
