Food is definitely the main essence of traveling.
You can’t fully experience the culture of a country if you do not taste local food. Think about one of the best journeys you have ever had, wasn’t food a big part of it? Didn’t it make your overall experience even more special?
Home food, street food, local restaurants, secret recipes, unique ingredients, strong fragrances. Can you picture all of this in your journey?
Although appreciating local food is very important, it is not enough to be a perfect traveler. If you really want to eat like a local, then you have to learn how to behave like a local, which means, respecting the good table manners of the country you are visiting. This is something very important to learn ahead, in order to avoid being disrespectful or very impolite towards locals. read more

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. Inspired by scientist Piotra Woźniak who studied memory and algorithms of effective learning, he programmed a simple version of the algorithm for his own use. The results exceeded his expectations and passed the exam with one of the best results. Fascinated by the potential of this form of learning, Rafal decided to share this tool with everyone. Fiszkoteka was born and today there is 1.000.000 users in Poland. read more
