The Berlin Wall may have fallen, the Iron Curtain cracked, but many of Communism's most famous legacies are alive and well in Krakow. Visit and discover Krakow's centrally-planned Socialist district of Nowa Huta, complete with steelworks and houses built in the Renaissance style of the Soviets. This unique project was meant to be a model Communist city but later became one of the centres of revolution and resistance within Poland.
During our tour, you will travel back in time in a genuine Trabant, Polish Fiat 'Toddler' or a Soviet Lada automobile to experience the wonders of this one-of-a-kind city. Not only will you discover how the average Pole lived, worked and played under Communism, but stories and anecdotes from your laid-back local guide will bring the "good old days" back to life. The 'Communism Tour' includes walking around the district, refreshments in an old-fashioned restaurant and a short visit to the local 1950s shop with unique, traditional tacky souvenirs and a truly Socialist interior design.
