Had a great time on our tour last week - probably the best we've been on anywhere! Really got a feel for the Nowa Huta of the past. Great guide, great car, great time! Only regret is that we didnt do the longer tour! Thanks again!
Wiktor as my guide. What a superb guy. His knowledge of all things art surrounding the cultural history of Nova Huta must be unmatched. If Gramsci was still alive I would recommend he gets in a Crazy Guides Trabant and does a tour of Nova Huta !
We had a brilliant tour today with Cyril and Lukasz. We learnt a lot about the history of Communism in Poland and it was particularly interesting hearing from people who experienced the regime. Both guys were very patient in answering all of our questions and showing us the sights. I would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Krakow: we learnt more in 3 hours on this tour than from anything else we have done. Thanks again for a great experience. Not so sure about the plum vodka though!!
Great tour yesterday, will book a tour for all of my friends and family as they come to visit me here!
I was rather curious to see, what a 'crazy tour' to Nowa Huta would offer apart from being another guided tour. Most probably the crazy guides were also curious about our group - the Stuttgarter Oratorienchor, a choir usually performing masses and oratorios by Bach, Mozart, Hummel or DvoĹák. How would our ‘serious’ choir match with ‘crazy’? Being driven in Trabis, a Lada and an old polish van (now a crazy party bus) we quickly learned how a car race feels, when you are crammed into a Trabi. Eryk, Victor and Pete gave as an informative and at the same time ironic insight into the communist ideals to be realised in Nowa Huta, socialist planning of everyday life and the final outcomes. The choir was so impressed that it couldn’t but perform 'Gaude Mater Polonia', the old Polish hymn once created in Kraków, in front of the former Vladimir Lenin Steelworks. It was a great experience – thank you, guys!
