3. Nowa Huta – Communist Tour

Nowa Huta was built in the 1950s as an ideal communist town. As usual, the communists failed to complete their plans and instead of creating the ideal town, they witnessed the creation of a unique town organism which soon started to live its own life. A visit to this district will help you realize that communism was something more than just stories about James Bond and the other Cold War era spies. Here we will tell you about everyday life under the communist regime but also about the struggle to abolish the hated system. There are hardly any places in the world where you can see social realism architecture on such a big scale. We will make your tour more interesting by providing photographs from the past.

Duration – 4-5 hours
