What you will see

In your programe

  • Centrally-planned Socialist
          district - Nowa Huta
  • the Renaissance style of the
          Soviets
  • Central Square
  • Residential units
  • Steelworks' headquarters
  • Soviet tank
  • Lord's Ark church
  • Communist restaurant

Many years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, some Communism's signs can be still seen in Krakow. The disctrict of Nowa Huta, which was centrally-planned part of the city is the perfect example. There are still steelworks and houses built in the Renaissance style of the Soviet. Surprisingly, the model Communist city turned out to be the place of evolution and resistance.

During our tour, you will travel back in time in a genuine Trabant automobile to feel the atmosphere of this wonderful 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!

To feel the spirit of by-gone Krakow you will visit a Communist restaurant which reminds of tastes that no longer exist.
