Despite the fall of the Berlin Wall and the end of the enforced Iron Curtain there are still many traces of Communism and its most famous legacies to be found in Krakow. Come visit the centrally-planned Socialist district of Nowa Huta were rugged steelworks and authentic Renaissance style houses built by the Soviets can be found. Originally this particular project was meant to be a model Communist city, which it didn't and instead became one of the centres of revolution and resistance within Poland.
Join a tour where you get to experience the district on a legitimate Trabant automobile that will surely make you feel like you have traveled back in time to the "good old days". Enjoy hearing stories and anecdotes from the daily grind and get a better understanding on how the life of the average Pole was under Communism rule on this fascinating Communism Tour!
This activity includes:
Local laid-back Crazy Guide - Hotel pick up/drop off - Trabant automobile - Nowa Huta district - Central Square - Residential units - Steelworks' headquarters - Soviet tank - Lord's Ark church - Refreshments in a Communist restaurant

Things to note

-The tour is not focused on accurate history, more on stories and anecdotes.
