Krakow: Guided Tour of Nowa Huta in Communist-Era Cars

Tours Culture & history Activities Good for groups Sightseeing on wheels

Join a guided tour of Krakow's Nowa Huta neighborhood and enjoy a ride in a communist-era vehicle. Find yourself transported to the center of an ideal, utopian working-class settlement.


  • Immerse yourself in the most infamous sites of the city, like St. Mary's Church
  • Explore one of the most interesting and more recent neighborhoods of Krakow
  • Learn about the history of how the area was planned to be a utopian city
  • Enjoy a comfortable ride through the streets in an authentic communist-era car
  • Take in the typical Polish Socialist Realist architecture of Nowa Huta


Immerse yourself in an interesting lesson about the history of Nowa Huta and see typical examples of Socialist Realist architecture aboard a Communist-era car such as a Fiat, Lada, Uaz, or other. Board a small time machine and take a guided ride through the streets of an ideal housing estate designed for the convenience of the ordinary workers of the Lenin steelworks in the 1950s. Feel the atmosphere of those times, listen to stories and anecdotes about where the largest monument to the leader of the revolution stood, what cars they used, and how Polish people lived behind the Iron Curtain. Imagine what the streets of Nowa Huta looked like thanks to numerous examples of functional architecture from that time and be given a comparison of the changes that have taken place. See Plac Centralny and Aleja Róż, which are most vividly characterized by socialist realism architecture and the assumptions in the urban layout of an ideal city of workers. Take advantage of a great opportunity to take some photos with a real IS2 tank that took part in battles on the Eastern Front of WWII. Next, visit St. Mary's Church of the Lord's Ark, the first church built in Nowa Huta after a long campaign by the local population, as there were no churches at all in the original communist city. The Church later became the symbol and base of the rebellion against the socialist regime. Finally, learn about and see the main gate of the steelworks and the history of this company, which required the founding of a whole new city.
