Overview

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.
