In her leisure time, she enjoys spending time with her family, including her three-year-old daughter, Laura.

Sylwia’s hometown of Lublin is worth exploring as it is an exciting experience that offers visitors a unique glimpse into the city's rich history and vibrant culture. With its stunning architecture, delicious cuisine, and friendly locals, Lublin is a destination that should not be missed.

One of the best ways to explore Lublin is on foot. The Old Town is a maze of charming cobblestone streets lined with colorful buildings that date back to the medieval era. Strolling through the narrow streets, visitors will find an abundance of cozy cafes, charming shops, and lively bars. The crown jewel of the Old Town is the impressive Lublin Castle, which towers over the city and is home to a fascinating museum that tells the story of Lublin's history.

Another must-see attraction in Lublin is the impressive Trinity Tower, which offers stunning panoramic views of the city. Visitors can climb the narrow spiral staircase to the top of the tower and take in the breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape.

Lublin is also known for its vibrant cultural scene, with a number of museums, galleries, and theaters to explore. The Lublin Museum, located in the Old Town, offers a fascinating look at the history of the city, while the Centre for the Meeting of Cultures showcases contemporary art and culture from around the world.

Top Chef World All Stars premieres on Bravo on March 9 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
